Not too shabby Monday, but changes are coming

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – After a nice improvement in the weather during Easter Sunday, unfortunately the improvements won’t be lasting. Find out below about the unsettled changes ahead…

Cool to chilly week ahead

The week starts out a bit milder than average with highs getting into the low to mid 50s, but temperatures drop to unseasonably chilly levels as more unsettled weather approaches mid to late week.

Close call Monday, but most should stay dry

A weak system passes just south of the state on Monday with the threat of a bit of light rain, mainly south of Syracuse. It now looks as though much of the area, including Syracuse gets through Monday dry with even some sun developing for the afternoon.

Turns wet for all midweek

After the weak system passes by the region to the south on Monday, we await a stronger system due to arrive later Tuesday/Tuesday night. This is the beginning of a gray, wet (and eventually white) stretch of weather taking us through the midweek.

What? More snow?

With temperatures in the mid to upper 40s on Tuesday, that’ll help keep the precipitation in the form of rain.

Another system develops Wednesday closer to the Mid-Atlantic coast as the storm system west of CNY transfers its energy to the new storm. As this transferring of energy takes place, the air will start turning colder, and probably cold enough for rain to change to snow over the higher terrain Wednesday afternoon. The rest of CNY, including Syracuse probably sees the changeover to snow occur Wednesday night.

Highs Wednesday likely start in the low to mid 40s, but fall back into the 30s by days end with some wind to boot.

The precipitation type looks to be mainly snow Thursday, but may mix with a bit of rain at times Thursday afternoon before probably going back to snow Thursday night into Friday morning.

Snow accumulations of at least a few inches is possible for all of CNY with higher amounts of 6”+ potentially occurring over the hills between late Wednesday afternoon and lunch time Friday. Stay tuned for updates.
