Much colder air has return to Central New York on Monday. Temperatures on Sunday climbed to 80 degrees, but a powerful cold front has brought temperatures below average. This is one of the few below average days we've seen in the month of October.  It's cold enough for lake effect rain showers across the region, with upper level air temperatures falling below freezing.  

In fact, it was cold enough for flurries in the Adirondacks.  Spotters reported flurries in Inlet and Tupper Lake earlier Monday!  

A huge dome of high pressure returns to the region and brings clearing and dry weather.  Decreasing clouds Monday night, with overnight lows falling into the upper 20s to low 30s.  This will be our first widespread frost of the season and will put an end to the growing season. 

This will be the coldest night of the week, as temperatures will gradually climb going forward.  Highs in the 50s on Tuesday, 60s on Wednesday, and near 70 by Thursday!
