Rain, cold, and some snow expected heading into the weekend

Much colder weather arrives this weekend with snow in the forecast.

Posted: Nov 8, 2018 6:28 PM

We've got rain and snow in the forecast heading into the weekend thanks to low pressure swinging through the region.  Here are the details...

Rain begins Friday, starting out (briefly) as snow in the higher elevations. As warmer air works in aloft, hilltop snow also turns to rain.

Rain continues Friday night, changing back to snow after midnight. Higher elevations are expected to pick up 1-3" of snow, with little snow accumulation expected in the lower elevations.

Lake effect snow develops north of the Mohawk Valley Saturday, dropping south Saturday night, with 1-3" of accumulation.

The ground is warm, so the snow will have a hard time sticking...at first. TOn Saturday night, temperatures are expected to fall well below freezing. There could be some icy spots heading into Sunday morning. Without that layer of sand and salt on the roads yet, it doesn't take much to make things slippery.

In addition to snow chances, it looks cold and windy. Highs on Saturday and Sunday aren't likely to climb out of the 30s, with wind chills in the 20s.
