Light snow is expected to fall on Friday night and Sunday afternoon.

Posted: Jan 31, 2020 10:43 PM

It's been a very quiet finish to the month of January. We're running a substantial snowfall deficit for Utica, with only 40" of snow for the season, so far. The average for this date is close to 60". Light snow does return to the area this weekend.

A nor'easter heads out to sea, but a few disturbances approaching from the west will deliver light snow to the region. The first arrives on Friday night. Widespread light snow develops Friday evening and continues through early Saturday morning. Accumulations look to be less than 1".

Saturday's weather looks generally quiet, with cloudy skies and highs in the mid 30s. The next round of light snow arrives Saturday night. Again, little accumulation is expected.

Another round of snow arrives on Sunday afternoon. This looks to be widespread and could cause a few slipper spots on the roadways - especially the higher elevations. An inch or two of accumulation is possible Sunday into Sunday night.

The weather patterns turn much more active early next week as a frontal boundary stalls over the region.
