Rain to snow on the way Sunday

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – After an uneventful start to the last weekend of January, it turns rainy/snowy Sunday. How much snow falls? Details are below…

Tonight stays pretty quiet…

It’s a quiet Saturday night with areas of fog and patchy mist/drizzle around but towards sunrise some rain showers will start working back in with the next storm system. Temperatures don’t move much tonight only dropping maybe a few degrees into the low to mid 30s.

Winter tries to make a comeback Sunday

A developing nor’easter will provide CNY with some accumulating wet snow on Sunday.

Right now, it looks like a rain and higher terrain snow move in near or just after sunrise Sunday morning Thruway points south. Elevation will play a key role with some higher terrain south of Syracuse and the Thruway coming away with the 3 to 6 inches possible, and across the southern Tug Hill and Adirondacks may see 3 to 5 inches.

Due to temperatures staying just warm enough aloft and slightly above freezing at the surface across the lower terrain, including Syracuse the rain/snow mix won’t change to just snow until the early to mid-afternoon hours. Therefore, these areas, again including Syracuse will pick up less, say a slushy 1 to 3 inches through Sunday night.

That said, any change in temperatures for Sunday could impact the amounts of snow that falls, so stay tuned for updates the rest of this weekend…

Pretty quiet much of the week ahead…

The nor’easter pulls away from CNY and the Northeast late Sunday night into Monday causing any lingering light snow showers/flurries around to start Monday to dissipate Monday morning/midday.

It’s brisk and seasonably chilly to start the week with highs in the low to mid 30s.

An area of high pressure builds in Tuesday into Wednesday should provide CNY with at least a brighter midweek, and possibly a bit of sunshine. Meanwhile a weak system will be passing south of the Northeast Wednesday and possibly triggering a spotty shower midweek, but overall, it looks mainly dry from Monday afternoon through midweek.

High temperatures will inch up towards 40 by midweek which is several degrees above average for the end of January.
