Much colder air arrives for the upcoming week with chances for snow on Monday and Wednesday.

Posted: Dec 13, 2020 10:58 PM

This weekend, temperatures were much warmer than normal.
However, that is going to change quickly this upcoming week.
Also, we'll be seeing a couple chances for snowfall.

A low pressure system brought a warm front into the region this
weekend. Temperatures were in the upper 40s on Saturday and
Sunday. This is nearly 15 degrees warmer than normal!

Big changes will take place for the work week. A low pressure
system brings snow showers to the Southern Valleys Monday
morning. Also, there will be areas of black ice. Then a cold
front arrives in the afternoon with much cooler air. Highs will
only reach the mid to upper 30s. However, this is normal for this
time of year. This cold front will produce scattered lake effect
snow showers during the second half of the day.

Here's how much snowfall you can expect. Around 1-2" for the
North Country and a trace-1" for the Mohawk Valley and Southern
Valleys. However, these amounts could be localized depending on
exactly where the lake effect snow bands move.

On the back end of this low pressure system, much colder air
moves in for the middle of the week. Mostly sunny skies with
highs only in the mid 20s on Tuesday. Then cloudy skies with snow
late on Wednesday and highs in the lower 20s. This is nearly 15
degrees below normal! In just two days temperatures change from
15 degrees above normal to 15 degrees below normal.

Just a heads up, a strong low pressure system will bring
widespread snow late on Wednesday, ending early Thursday.
However, the heaviest accumulation will be in the Southern
Valleys. Only a light accumulation is expected for the Mohawk
Valley and North Country. Stay tuned for a snowfall forecast as
this system moves closer and we have the most accurate data.
