Cold winds continue to howl this afternoon, but are slowly letting up & will continue to do so as we move toward dinner into tonight. It will remain blustery tonight into Friday, but nothing like what we've had today thankfully!
Later tonight into Friday we will be focusing on some lake snows destined for many. The heaviest, as typically is the case will fall up toward the lake shore during the period, but most should have at least a few inches of snow on the ground by day's end Friday. A trough is expected to pass through late tonight into early Friday morning which will bring the lake snows across much of the area during this time & should lead to a slick ride in for many Friday. Snow should taper some & shift to the north toward the lake later in the day into early Friday night, but then winds will probably become southwest in advance of a weak little clipper possibly pushing decent band off Lake Erie near or into the Greater Rochester area late Friday night into the start of Saturday. The snow should break up & dissipate during the day Saturday as the weak little feature crosses the area.
A stronger clipper, & one to watch, will then dive into the Northeast with some general snows, which should at least produce minor accumulations. Late Sunday/Sunday night into Monday morning it will turn colder with some lake snows probable. Stay tuned over the coming days, as winter flexes it's muscles some...
Have a great night everyone!
