Freezing rain expected Saturday night

Parts of Central New York are expected to see a period of freezing rain on Saturday night.

Posted: Nov 30, 2018 6:52 PM

It's been another solid week of winter weather here in Central New York, even though calendar winter is still a few weeks away. Temperatures have remained consistently below average over the past several weeks, with 18 of the past 22 days being below average. The month of November ends up being the 10th coldest and 6th snowiest on record. Winter weather isn't going anywhere anytime soon, as our next weather event will likely bring us an icy mix to start.

The chance of freezing rain begins late Saturday. Before the freezing rain arrives, the majority of the day looks pretty nice. In fact, we'll likely see some SUNSHINE, which is very hard to get this time of year. Temperatures will likely climb into the low 30s. By the time the precipitation arrives, the air aloft is expected to be above freezing, with surface temperatures below freezing. This setup creates freezing rain, and we're expecting this to happen Saturday evening between 8pm-midnight for many area.

Warmer weather will eventually arrive Saturday night and turn everything over to plain rain. A brief warm up is expected on Sunday, with temperatures in the 40s!
