A low pressure system is moving into the region from the
west. It has a warm front and a cold front attached to it.
First, we will get snow showers ahead of the warm front. Plan on
needing extra time for your morning commute with slippery roads.
The snow will transition to rain by Monday afternoon as
temperatures begin to warm up behind the warm front. Highs will
reach the lower 40s as a south wind drives up warm air.
As a cold front approaches, the precipitation changes back to
snow in the evening. There is the possibility for snow squalls
with a breezy west wind. Also, icy spots will develop in areas
that saw rain. Plan on needing extra time driving home for your
evening commute as well. The roads will be icy and visibility
could be poor at times.
Lake effect snow showers continue overnight and for the first
half of Tuesday. This is due to a Northwest wind drawing cold air
over Lake Ontario. Eventually, the snow looks to end around lunch
time on Tuesday.
Here's how much snowfall accumulation is expected. The greatest
amounts will be in the North Country. From Monday morning to
Tuesday morning, Around 2-4" in the North Country and a trace to
2" in the Mohawk Valley and Southern Valleys.
