Windier and snowier tonight

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – A brief bout of winter weather with gusty winds impacts CNY to finish out the weekend, but spring air returns again soon…

Wind and lake snow impacting CNY

Due to gusty winds and winter returning with some accumulating snow there are wind and snow alerts in effect across much of CNY.

Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for Jefferson, Oswego, Lewis and Northern Oneida counties into Monday, mainly in and around the Tug Hill with significant snowfall expected.

Winter Weather Advisory is in effect across the eastern Finger Lakes, including Syracuse Sunday into the start of Monday with lesser, but still somewhat impactful snow expected, especially across the hills south of Syracuse.

Lastly, a Wind Advisory is also in effect for much of CNY, including Syracuse, due to winds expected to gust up to 45 or 50 mph at times Sunday night into Monday. Winds of this magnitude will produce some blowing and drifting snow, greatly reduce visibility at times and possibly cause a few power outages too.

Not too much snow for most, but…

The worst stretch of weather (the combination of snow and strong northwest winds greater than 40 mph) comes tonight, especially late.

Road conditions should become at least somewhat slick/sloppy late tonight into the start of the morning commute Monday due to the lingering snow and blowing snow.

The greatest totals come over higher elevations south of Syracuse and closer to the Tug Hill where 3-6 inches is expected with some locally higher totals up across the Tug Hill. We think the 3–6-inch snowfall area ends up in communities not too far south of the city of Syracuse like Marcellus, Skaneateles, Onondaga Hill, Lafayette, Jamesville and Manlius.

The snow quickly tapers Monday morning, but the wind remains gusty, 40+ mph, through the day with sunshine developing come the late morning and afternoon from west to east.

Highs on Monday should get up into the low 40s, but those gusty winds make it feel like it’s mainly in the 20s, so be sure to dress warm heading out.

Back to spring beyond Monday

After a seasonable, blustery Monday, temperatures jump back up into the 50s Tuesday with some more sun, and probably into the 60s come Wednesday! We cool some to end the week but remain warmer than average. Stay tuned.
