SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – We have cooled off from back-to-back record highs Friday and Saturday, but is there any winter weather coming to CNY? Find out below.
Cool, but still pretty mild into Tuesday
We will stay on the cooler side, but by no means are we cold by mid-February standards into Tuesday. Lows tonight are within a few degrees of 30, and highs Tuesday should be up near 40 again!
As the week goes on the temperatures will start to fall and feel more like February around here.
Nor’easter a miss for CNY
Once again central New York are just spectators to a coastal storm.
Snow develops late tonight into Tuesday, but only for areas towards Scranton, the Catskills, lower Hudson Valley, downstate/NYC into southern New England where up to a foot of snow could fall in spots!
Any snow at all this week?
Yes, there is actually, and it’s probably going to get pretty busy/wintry around here later this week.
The Nor’easter may not directly impact CNY, but the aftermath of it will.
A cold front will get pulled through on the backside of the nor’easter leading to chillier air later Tuesday night into Wednesday/Valentine’s Day.
When do the first flakes of February fall?
There will be scattered snow showers and a brief squall or two developing Tuesday evening after 5 or 6 pm possibly clipping the evening commute.
Behind the cold front late Tuesday night into the start of Wednesday the colder air generates some lake effect snow showers later Tuesday night and tapering Wednesday morning/midday.
Roads could get somewhat slick/sloppy in spots Tuesday night into the start of Wednesday as readings drop below freezing Tuesday night.
How much falls?
A coating to 2 inches is expected for most with up to 3 or 4 inches possible in spots across the hills south of Syracuse and over the Tug Hill.
More significant snow possible…
There’s at least a couple of other chances of more significant snow late Thursday afternoon into Friday and again over the weekend as a couple of stronger clippers zip through followed by lake snow.
