Northwest winds that have induced a band of lake effect snow showers through early this morning will be shifting more southwesterly into the later AM. This should lift the steadiest batch of snow northward, plopping it right over the Tug Hill area. Oswego, Lewis, and Northern Oneida Counties may see an additional 2-6” by this evening.
A weak cold front drops through late today, nudging that band of snow back down farther south. More of central New York may see heavier bursts of snow during this evening. From there, high pressure briefly tries to edge in, allowing for snow showers to clear through most of Monday (Christmas Eve).
Christmas Eve night, the Storm Team will be turning an eye to the southwest as we watch a new storm system enter the area. We’ll watch as snow showers fall into Christmas day morning, accumulating an additional 2-4” by the time the kids wake up.
It’s worth noting that after Christmas a midweek snowstorm will cause some travel issues around the area. While the computer models are still hammering out some differences, some are suggesting that icing will be a problem Wednesday night into Thursday. Stay tuned for more updates.
