A round of rain and snow this weekend

A round of rain showers Saturday morning along a warm front, then a second round of heavier rain showers in the evening, eventually transitioning to snow heading into Sunday as a cold front moves in.

Posted: Dec 13, 2019 11:20 PM

Rain showers Friday night will become more widespread for early Saturday morning as a warm front
moves in. Overnight lows will be much warmer than normal in the upper 30s.

Throughout the day on Saturday, you'll want to keep the umbrella handy. We will have on and off light
rain showers throughout the day under mostly cloudy skies. A mild day with high temperatures reaching
the mid 40s. A low pressure system will move into Central New York Saturday evening bringing another
round of heavier rain showers.

This system exits Saturday night, with cold air moving in behind the cold front. The rain will
transition to snow showers, becoming lake effect snow into Sunday. Overnight lows in the lower 30s.

On Sunday, the wind lines up parallel along Lake Ontario, coming from the West. This is a good set up
for lake effect snow showers. The snow will be mostly confined to the Mohawk Valley and areas further
North. Snowfall totals could range from a trace to 1 inch around Cooperstown, but up to 6 inches by
Boonville. We will give you a detailed snowfall forecast as the event comes closer.

The wind will also be fairly strong throughout the day on Sunday. Expect wind speeds around 15-20mph,
with gusts up to 40mph. High temperatures will be in the mid 30s but wind chill will make it feel like
the 20s.

The snow ends Sunday night and the wind will slow down. It will get cold quickly with overnight low
temperatures in the teens.
