Accumulating snow returns Monday night

A weak weather system skids into the northeast and brings light snow to our region.

Posted: Jan 15, 2018 5:27 PM

After a wild weekend of weather, we get a chance to catch our breaths in the weather department. Our largest snowfall of the season (so far) happened on Saturday morning for Utica, with an accumulation of 9". Temperatures fell well below zero Saturday and Sunday night, with the coldest temperature being -20 in Rome.

Light snow and warmer air is in our future. The snow comes from low pressure that slides in from the west. This will redevelop off the Atlantic Ocean as a nor'easter, but by the time it happens it will be east of our area. We do expect to see some light snow from this event, beginning Monday evening between 9-11pm and continuing through Tuesday night. Here's a look at the snowfall forecast:

Even though these numbers aren't impressive for CNY standards, roads are still expected to be a bit slick at times.

The weather looks generally quiet this week, with a slow warm up expected over the next several days. Another January thaw is expected next week, though this one doesn't look to be as dramatic as the last one.
