Our first nor'easter of the season is expected to impact CNY Wednesday night into Thursday, bringing a cold, wind swept rain.

TIMING: The storm begins locally Wednesday evening and continues through Thursday.

RAINFALL: 1-3" of rain is expected across the region, taking 24 hours to accumulate. This could be enough to cause minor flooding, mainly in poor drainage areas. Falling leaves can clog storm drains - a big wildcard for this time of year.

WIND: Breezing conditions are expected on Wednesday, with gusts up to 30 mph. The hilltops south of the valley peak around 40 mph. The windiest part of the event looks to be Thursday afternoon, with wind gusts up to 40 mph. If you have outside decorations, now is the time to secure them, or bring them inside.

SNOW: Not this time, at least for our area. The highest elevations of the Adirondacks (above 4000 feet) will likely see accumulating snow (cancel the hiking trip).

Chilly weather continues on Friday, with lake effect rain showers. Temperatures are only expected to climb into the upper 40s again. The weather does look to warm up again as we head into the weekend. High temperatures return to the 60s by Sunday!
