Lake effect snow finally weakens tonight

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – Mainly quiet for most of CNY, but heavy lake snow continues east-northeast of Lake Ontario into Thursday evening. Any snow for Syracuse anytime soon? Details are below…

Lake snow continues to pile up for some…

Thursday evening:

The heavy lake snow is on the move Thursday evening.  It starts over Jefferson County near Watertown then steadily moves south through Lewis and Oswego Counties.  While the band of snow is weakening while this happens, it puts down a quick 2 to 6 inches of additional accumulation.

Due to threat of additional significant accumulations, a Lake Effect Snow Warning continues for Oswego County until 1 am Friday but has expired for Jefferson and Lewis Counties.

When does it end?!

The band will drift back south and weaken before finally fizzling out Thursday night. The wind is shifting to the north-northeast which is going to shut the lake effect down for now.

The lake effect falls apart before it reaches Syracuse and the rest of central New York.  Instead, skies remain mostly cloudy.

It stays cold through the rest of the week with highs ranging from the upper teens to mid-20s, while wind chills range from 0 to +15 through Friday

Quick shot of snow for Friday

A new system is moving to our south Friday which will bring some light to occasionally moderate snow to CNY. This is mainly going to impact areas along and south of the Thruway. This is not expected to be a high-impact storm for us. Accumulations are expected to stay a couple of inches or less, however.  The North Country gets a break with little if any snow.

What we’re really noticing is the bitter cold air funneling in the Northeast behind this. Wind chills over the weekend will hover around 0º. Some lake effect snow will be around the Syracuse area again since the wind is coming from the northwest.
