The calendar says Monday is the last day of winter, but the weather in Central New York says otherwise.  We're in the middle of a cold, dry weather pattern that is expected to dominate our weather for the remainder of the week.  A pesky nor'easter will need to be watched very closely for the middle of the week, but the informatoin we're looking at as of Monday keeps it south and east of our area.  Here's a quick tour of the computer models to showcase the forecast:

The forecasting models are having trouble with the track of this storm, but all of the models keep the snow out of Central New York.  The idea here is that the cold, dry air in place will help deflect this storm out of Central New York.

A few snow showers are expected late Thursday and Friday, followed by another large dome of high pressure.  Temperatures will remain below average as we head into the weekend, but highs will slowly climb above freezing each day.
