Spring on pause, cold and snowy weather continues

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – Spring officially started at 11:06 last night, but Old Man Winter has other ideas. Details below…

Stays wintry through midweek…

A burst of snow expected over all of central New York midday/early afternoon Wednesday as a frontal system moves through. This is followed by scattered snow showers/squalls into the start of Wednesday night. An additional coating to an inch or two falls for most Wednesday, but upwards 2 to 4” + is possible east of Lake Ontario.

Winds also crank up Wednesday during the afternoon gusting to between 30 and 40 mph and the strong wind continues into Thursday, too.

Additional accumulations are likely Wednesday night into the start of Thursday southeast of Lake Ontario as the air over us gets even colder. Right now, it looks like Syracuse could see a couple inches of lake effect by Thursday morning with some higher totals in the hills south of Syracuse.

Chilly, more snow on the way

More unseasonably chilly air settles into CNY the rest of the week along with the snow.

High temperatures the rest of the week will only be in the 30s to near 40 along with wind chills in the 20s and at times teens. We bottom out temperature wise on Thursday when highs struggle to reach freezing!

Oh, and some wintry weather possible to start the weekend

While this is all happening midweek, we aren’t losing focus on Friday night into the start Saturday.

Low pressure is moving up the coast Friday night but there are plenty of question marks as of Tuesday night as to how quickly this storm strengthens and how cold it will be which likely determines how much snow falls and whether rain mixes in across central New York.

Stay tuned for updates.
