Colder weather is here to stay, at least for half of this week. Last night's cold front brought quite a bit of wind to the area along with locally heavy rain. In the wake of this front, temperatures have dropped and winds have remained gusty. Temperatures this evening have settled back into the low 40s and upper 30s with scattered lake effect rain and snow showers.
Tonight, a steady west wind will intensify lake effect snow already falling north of the Mohawk Valley. We're expecting some accumulation overnight in the snow belt regions of our area:
This band of lake effect snow is expected to drop south tomorrow, bringing lake effect snow to the Mohawk Valley during the morning commute. This doesn't last long, with winds turning into the northwest, pushing the band of snow south. Accumulating snow is expected tomorrow afternooon for the hilltops south of the Mohawk Valley.
Cold weather settles in on Wednesday, with highs only in the low 30s. Overnight lows look to fall into the teens tomorrow night as well as Wednesday night. The weather is expected to warm up later this week.
