It's that time of year. Colder than average weather looks to linger in Central New York this week, bringing the possibility of the first snowflakes of the season.

Today's rain continues tonight and comes to an end by tomorrow morning. While it will be chilly, it won't be cold enough for snow. Overnight lows falls into the upper 30s.

The first chance for snow looks to be along the higher elevations north of the Mohawk Valley tomorrow night. This is on the tail end of a weak weather system moving through the region. No accumulation is expected here, and it's only expected to happen along higher elevations.

The next chance for snow looks to be Thursday night. This snow comes from the remnants of Zeta, a hurricane that's expected to hit the Gulf of Mexico. The track will ultimately determine which areas will be affected in our local area, and it's too early to pin down the details. We'll pass along updates as they become available.

The average first snowfall of the season depends on your location.  The hilltops typically see snow by mid October, with the lower elevations eeing the first snowfall by late October.  Here's a breakdown of this for our local region:
