Well, snow lovers old man winter may really be flexing his muscles over the next 7 to 10 days here in the Northeast.
After a fairly mild start to the week it will turn progressively colder tonight through Thursday, as a couple of cold fronts will dive through. Highs will go from around 40 today, to around 30 Tuesday, to mid 20s Wednesday & low 20s Thursday! Brrr!!! All the while, some significant lake snows will likely fire up initially south & west of Rochester off Lake Erie over & around Wyoming County later Tuesday through Wednesday. Several inches will likely pile up in the most persistent snows east-northeast of Lakes Erie & Ontario, & nothing more than a coating to an inch or so will fall for the rest of us outside the lake snows during the period.
Late Wednesday night/Early Thursday, though, an Arctic front will attempt to push in from the north & if this in fact happens, the accumulating lake snows off Lake Ontario COULD come close, or into the Greater Rochester area for some time Thursday. Stay tuned for updates through the week regarding this...
A little lake snow may fly off Erie Friday with a milder, but still chilly southwest flow, & then the weekend comes around & we will be watching a developing, moisture laden storm very closely for Saturday & Saturday night. This is still several days out, but it's definitely something that the long range data is hinting at, as a possibility. Stay tuned.
Have a great night WNY!
