A little lake snow will fly with some diurnal snow showers thanks to the daytime heating & higher sun angle. Accumulations will be minimal this afternoon, but a little more aggressive up along & north of Rt. 104 tonight, with lesser amounts south & for most. Temperatures will range from 20 to 25 this afternoon & get down into the low teens tonight. Tuesday will feature a little more lake snow with a coating to an inch or two for most around & north of the Thruway, but several inches still possible lakeside once again before the lake snow lifts north completely out of the area later in the afternoon.
Late Tuesday night/early Wednesday Arctic cold front #1 will come through with a burst of snow & a brief period of lake snow expected Wednesday, before it lifts out again in advance of another even more intense shot of Arctic air due to blow through Thursday morning with a burst of snow & probably more aggressive lake snows and blowing snow. Temperatures will only top out in the low to mid teens Wednesday with wind chills probably in the -15 to 0 range throughout the day, while it will likely be worse late Wednesday night, Thursday into Friday with temperatures likely to be only within a few degrees of 10 & wind chills well below 0 through much of the period! Would not be surprised to see wind chill advisories &/or warnings issued for at least the Wednesday through Friday morning time frame. So be prepared for a brutal stretch everyone once again.
A shot of mainly minor accumulating snows appears to be likely for Saturday with some limited lake snows late Saturday through Saturday night & lingering a bit into Sunday with brisk winds developing again too. Highs should make the low to mid 20s Saturday, but slip back into the teens to around 20 Sunday. It MAY get interesting early to mid next week with a storm too. Stay tuned for updates everyone this week...
Have a great afternoon & night & stay warm this week!
