The next weather maker brings the chance of damaging winds to the region on Sunday night, in addition to rain and snow.  Before that happens, the weather is expected to stay dry and quiet as we start the weekend.  Saturday looks dry and partly sunny.  Clouds thicken up Saturday afternoon and the next weather maker begins Saturday night.

Before the strong winds arrive, the weather is expected to turn quite mild on Sunday. High temperatures are expected to climb into the upper 40s to low 50s in our region, with widespread rain. The rain may briefly start out as freezing rain late Saturday night, but this isn't expected to last long.

A strong cold front arrives Sunday night, bringing strong winds to the region. Peak wind gusts could reach 50-60 mph. This is enough to cause power outages and minor damage.  

Strong winds continue into Monday, with lake effect snow showers throughout the day.  Some accumulating snow is possible, especially north of the Mohawk Valley.  Cold weather settles in for the remainder of the week, with highs generally in the 20s and overnight lows in the single digits.
