Say it ain't snow! Yes, this cold pattern looks to produce snow as we head into Mother's Day weekend. Did you know that it can snow on Mother's Day weekend? That looks to be the case, this year.

A cold front arrives Thursday evening, bringing us a few scattered showers late in the day. Before the front arrives, temperatures look pretty mild, with highs in the upper 50s! The weather cools off on Friday, with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 40s.

As the front heads south, a wave of low pressure develops along the front and moves across the Atlantic coast. This nor'easter looks to bring rain and snow to southeastern NY, northeast PA, and New England Friday night into Saturday.  The brunt of this storm is expected to miss Central New York, but areas south of the Mohawk Valley could see some light snow Friday night.

While our region escapes the snow from the nor'easter, we won't be able to escape lake effect snow showers in this system's wake.  The core of cold air from the north drops in Saturday. It looks miserable, with windy weather all day with rounds of rain, snow, and snow pellets. Highs are only expected to be in the upper 30s. The good news is this really cold weather retreats pretty quickly. By Mother's Day, the sunshine returns, the weather looks dry, and highs climb back into the upper 40s. Cool weather continues for Monday and Tuesday, before the weather starts to warm up again on Wednesday.

For folks looking for an end to this, the good news is this weather is expected to change starting late next week.
