SEVERE WX : Wind Chill Advisory - Wind Advisory View Alerts

Back to winter this weekend

After a brief break in the snow and cold, we're back to more typical weather this weekend.

Posted: Feb 5, 2021 5:33 PM

We're into the second half of the winter season here in Central New York. The second half is looking a lot more active and colder compared to the first half. We started out with our second nor'easter of the season earlier this week, which brought a foot of snowfall to many areas. Since then, the weather has been dry and sunny. After a brief round of snow earlier today, temperatures SOARED into the mid 40s! Check out some of the high temperatures today:

The sunshine, mild temperatures, and wind acted like a blowtorch on the snowpack. There's still plenty of snow to enjoy across the region, though, and conditions are expected to improve for winter sports. A cold front rolling through the region tonight will bring a burst of snow to the area and bring temperatures back into the 20s overnight.

Lake effect snow is expected to develop, but the bands will generally stay north of Central New York tonight as well as Saturday. A cold, breezy Saturday, with an occasional snow shower from lake effect snow showers from Erie. Highs climb into the mid to upper 20s, with wind chills in the teens.

Widespread light snow develops on Sunday, as the next nor'easter moves up the east coast. Our forecast models continue to keep the brunt of the heaviest snow south and east of Central New York, but we will continue to monitor any last minute trends.
