WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - We will run the risk for a snow shower and some freezing drizzle overnight and tomorrow morning.
While our temperatures will warm into the 40′s by Friday much of this time will be rather quiet. However, as we head into Friday afternoon and evening the weather will turn more active. Rain showers look to increase later Friday before a cold front moves through overnight and into Saturday.
With the passage of the cold front temperatures will start to drop some which will turn rain showers to snow showers late Friday night. The higher elevations will see the transition to snow before the lower elevations. Before the rain and snow showers are over with Saturday some locations could pick up a few inches. Exact amounts and locations are still unknown at this time.
We will likely see a break in the precipitation Saturday afternoon and evening before we start to see a small lake response into Sunday morning. While the lake effect looks to start out rather weak by late Sunday the lake snow should become more organized as colder air moves in. At this time it is too early to say how much or where the lake effect will set up.
One thing does seem to be for certain and the computer models all agree that much colder air at the surface and aloft will move in to start the workweek. At this time there are some indications that we could see an impressive lake response which could lead to a significant lake effect snowstorm next week. The important thing to note is we are still several days out and the forecast needs to be fine-tuned.
