Lake effect snow and arctic air on the way

A flash freeze will create icy conditions Tuesday evening. Lake effect snow develops tonight with cold weather and wind expected Wednesday and Thursday.

Posted: Dec 12, 2017 5:17 PM

The first winter storm of the season is not done yet across the region. Heavy snow fell earlier today across the hilltops north of the Mohawk valley. Between 11-12" of snow fell in areas like Remsen, Forestport, and Cold Brook. The snowfall was much lighter in the lower elevations, with 3.5" officially for Utica from round one.

Round two is coming tonight, and it starts with a flash freeze. An arctic front crossed the region this afternoon and brought a return to heavier snowfall. Windy conditions develop this evening as temperatures fall below freezing. Watch out for icy conditions developing along untreated surfaces.

We're also following the development of lake effect snow on the back end of this storm. The bands are expected to develop north of the Mohawk Valley this evening. As winds shift into the north-northwest, the bands will drop south through the Mohawk Valley and will settle into Madison County and Western Oneida County tomorrow morning and early afternoon. The bands will then shift north again as winds shift into the west.  The bottom line is many areas will get some additional snow, but the heaviest amounts look to stay out of the Mohawk Valley.
