An early winter settles in...

Cold and snowy weather is expected to continue.

Posted: Nov 13, 2018 6:08 PM

Winter is here, but is it here to stay? The answer is yes, for now. We're in the thick of it for at least the next week, with below average temperatures and several chances for snow.

Snow gets plenty of attention around here, but be aware that black ice will accommodate any snowfall tonight. Temperatures climbed above freezing for most of the lower spots today and will fall below freezing tonight. This process is expected to happen faster than the water evaporates, setting the stage for a freeze. Something to keep in mind for tomorrow morning too.

As for lake effect snow, the band is expected to develop tonight and drop south. The winds are not very steady this time around, so the band brings a quick blanket of snow to most of the region. The steadiest snowfall is expected to fall in Madison County. This county is the only one under a winter storm warning (the same conditions used to issue the former lake effect snow warning, which has been discontinued).

Cold conditions continue on Wednesday, with temperatures failing to reach the freezing mark, a tough thing to do this time of year. Temperatures fall to near record lows on Wednesday night, with many spots in the teens and coldest spots in the single digits.

As if that wasn't enough, widespread snow is in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. The next weather system looks to be a nor'easter, with widespread accumulating snow (moderate accumulations) for the region.
