What a difference a day makes! Most areas are waking up close to 40 degrees warmer this morning compared to 24 hours ago! Light snow continues to move into the region this morning, with pockets of moderate snow for the Mohawk Valley and points north. Snow becomes more widespread this afternoon  as a trough moves through the region. 

Heading into late this evening into tonight, lake effect snow develops over Northern Oneida County and Southern Lewis County. This band will drift south throughout the overnight before tapering off by Tuesday morning as high pressure builds in. Temperatures hold steady in the upper 20s to low 30s. 

A lot of question marks as we head into the middle and end of the work week. Next round a precipitation arrives Wednesday evening as a warm front edges into the region. While temperatures aloft warm up quickly, at the surface, temperatures will be hovering the low 30s, especially in typical cold spots. That means that sleet and freezing rain is possible Wednesday evening before temperatures warm up by Wednesday night.

Speaking of warm, a blast of some very warm air moves in for Thursday and Friday with precipitation staying as all rain. A few areas of concern with the warm up and rain: streams and rivers could see ice jams with the warm up, with could cause flooding. Also, if the track of the storm shifts or speeds up on Friday with the GFS dragging in cold air fast, with a wintry mix to snow late Friday into Saturday. But it looks more likely that we will stay warm through Saturday morning with more rain. Stay tuned.
