Cold this weekend

The weather remains cold as we head through the weekend.

Posted: Mar 16, 2018 4:47 PM

Snowy weather earlier this week transitions to dry but colder weather as we head into the weekend.  After picking up over a foot of snow in the span of three days, here's where we stand on the season for Utica:

In March, 33" of snow has already fallen, making it one of the snowiest on record.  We still have plenty of March left to go!

In the short term, snow is not going to be the big story, but rather the cold and wind.  Highs on Saturday and Sunday will barely approach 30 in the lower elevations.  Combine that with the wind and it will feel like teens for most of the day.  High pressure building in from the north is responsible for this cold weather.  We're expecting the coldest night of the month to occur on Saturday night, with overnight lows in the single digits.  The record low for that date is -6 set back in 1993 (in the wake of the blizzard of '93).

As we move forward, we're watching another potential storm for the middle of next week.  The early trend was up the coast, but the most recent trend is out to sea.  This flip in data is very common when looking at long term forecasts.  We're expecting more changes in where that storm goes before the weekend is out, but at this point the odds favor a miss.  Stay tuned!
