Accumulating snowfall and gusty winds Monday

A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for moderate lake effect snow and gusty winds on Monday, with the heaviest accumulation North of the Mohawk Valley.

Posted: Jan 5, 2020 7:25 PM

A Winter Weather Advisory is issued for Northern Oneida, Northern Herkimer, and Lewis Counties from
4:00am Monday to 4:00am Tuesday for accumulating moderate snowfall and gusty winds. This will create
hazardous driving conditions for your Monday morning and evening commute.

Sunday night, the snowfall begins. A low pressure system moves in from the West with a cold front attached
to it. The snowfall will become moderate to heavy overnight and into Monday morning ahead of this front.
Plan on needing some extra time to brush off your car Monday morning and for your morning commute with snow
covered roads. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s.

As this cold front moves into Central New York late Monday morning, the winds will begin to pick up. Wind
speeds will be around 15-20mph with gusts up to 30mph. This will create blowing snow and areas of low
visibility. Highs will reach the mid 30s.

Monday evening, the snow becomes lighter and is more confined to the North Country. This is because the wind
direction will change to a West wind. This means the lake effect snow bands will roll off the East side of
Lake Ontario. The snow will move inland over Northern Oneida, Lewis, and Northern Herkimer Counties. These
are the areas a Winter Weather Advisory is issued for.

The snow continues Monday night, eventually ending Tuesday morning with decreasing cloud cover. Overnight
lows in the mid 20s. By Tuesday morning, we will have accumulated about 4-7" in the North Country, 2-4" in
the Mohawk Valley, and around a trace to 2" for areas further South.
