Steady snow tapering to snow showers tonight

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – It turned snowy for most Sunday afternoon and it remains pretty snowy Sunday evening too before it tapers. How much more snow falls? Details are below…

Steady snow tapers mid to late evening

A nor’easter pulls away from the Northeast and CNY with steady snow tapering later this evening. Some additional minor accumulations are expected, especially over the hills.

Rain and higher terrain snow that developed Sunday morning transitioned to all snow across CNY, including Syracuse, during the mid to late afternoon hours which continues into this evening. Steady snow tapers to occasional lighter snow showers and flurries after 8 or 9 this evening from northwest to southeast across CNY.

Another slushy coating to 2 or 3 inches is expected across the region with the higher terrain, especially south and east of Syracuse picking up the higher totals tonight. Roads will be at least a bit slick and sloppy for all this evening, but slickest across the hillier terrain.

ABOVE IS THE AMOUNT OF NEW SNOWFALL FORECAST SUNDAY NIGHT

Elevation will play a key role with some higher terrain south of Syracuse and the Thruway coming away with 3 to 6 inches of snow, while across the southern Tug Hill and Adirondacks 3 to 5 inches of snow is possible by Monday morning. For Syracuse and the lower terrain of CNY will only total about 1 to as much as 2 or 3 inches through tonight.

ABOVE IS THE SNOWFALL TOTALS EXPECTED BY 7 AM MONDAY

Pretty quiet much of the week ahead…

The nor’easter pulls away from CNY and the Northeast late tonight into Monday, causing any lingering light snow showers/flurries around early Monday to dissipate by 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, and should provide CNY with a drier and somewhat brighter midweek. Meanwhile, a weak system will be passing south of the Northeast Wednesday may trigger a spotty shower, but overall it looks mainly dry from Monday afternoon through midweek.

High temperatures will inch up towards 40 again by Tuesday through Thursday which is several degrees above average for the end of January and start of February.
