It's still November right? It feels more like winter these days in Upstate New York, with consistent below freezing temperatures and accumulating snowfall. This pattern isn't going anywhere anytime soon, and it's expected to cause some travel issues for parts of the region.
A weak weather system brushes the Southern Valleys tonight, producing 1-3" of snowfall. A few of the higher elevations could see as much as 4" of snow. This system brings snow tonight and departs by morning. Watch out for a few slick spots on the roadways. In the Mohawk Valley, snow is expected to be much lighter, with only a trace to an inch of accumulation.
Snow showers Tuesday
In the wake of tonight's sytem, a push of wind will instigate the lakes and produce snow showers. These are expected to develop and persist for most of the day, but little accumulation is expected. Temperatures will be above freezing too, so any snow that does fall will have a hard time sticking to the roadways.
An arctic front arrives on Wednesday, producing snow squalls in the afternoon. Travel could potentially be tricky for a short period of time.
VERY COLD air will follow, with record cold in the forecast for Thanksgiving. Highs will likely stay in the teens with overnight lows near or below zero.
Season snowfall as of Monday, 11/19:
