The Storm Team continues to monitor a storm now over the Great Lakes and tracking due east/northeast. Late tonight the system will introduce a mix of rain, snow, and freezing rain to central New York. Since the low pressure is weakening as it approaches, precipitation should generally be on the light side. The biggest concern is for areas that could see freezing rain- likely over the Tug Hill and in any high elevations.
The low continues to move northeastward, introducing milder air. It won’t be surprising to see temperatures reaching the mid 40s for areas near Syracuse and the Finger Lakes, but cooler temperatures in the 30s to near 40 are possible for areas farther north.
The next in a series of storm systems will start to impact central New York Monday night into Tuesday. Our computer models over the last couple of days have suggested a number of different solutions as to how this system will unfold. Right now, it looks like one low will track north into western New York by Tuesday morning. This should initially keep us mild with rain the likely precipitation type. By later in the day, however, a secondary low will try to form somewhere near the southern New England coast. If that were to happen we could see a change in our precipitation from rain to snow.
