Much colder air will move over our area through the remainder of this holiday weekend. Snow showers will become widespread, with many areas seeing their first snow accumulation of the season. Also, we haven’t felt much wind over the past week, with tranquil weather over us, but that has already changed as we’ve become quite blustery.
What we’ll see through Saturday is mainly flurries to light snow showers. Not much accumulation is likely during the day, with an inch or so possible over the higher elevations south and southeast of Syracuse. Temperatures Saturday will rise no higher than 35, and with gusty northwest winds of 15-35 mph, wind chill temperatures will be in the 20s.
As temperatures cool Saturday night, accumulating snows will become more likely, especially over higher elevations. Around Syracuse, an inch or two of snow is possible by Sunday morning. Over higher elevations south and southeast of Syracuse, accumulations of 3-5” are possible by Sunday morning. During the day Sunday, the chance for accumulating snow will shift northward into the counties east of Lake Ontario. There will be a few snow showers to end off the holiday weekend, with a quiet start to the new work and school week Monday.
