I hope you had the chance to enjoy Monday's sunshine. This looks like the best weather for the rest of the week. Low pressure returns on Tuesday and brings heavy rain to the region, with strong winds on Wednesday and snow showers Wednesday night. Here are the details:

Rain begins Tuesday morning, falling steady and heavy throughout the day. Rain is likely going to mix with snow along the higher elevations. Little snow accumulation is expected. Rainfall accumulation will likely range between 1-2". This is enough to be concerned about flooding again in flood prone and low lying areas.

A mild surge of air makes it as far north as the Mohawk Valley on Wednesday, meaning temperatures could briefly spike into the 50s. This won't last, with cold air returning with a vengence. Winds on Wendesday afternoon could gust over 50mph, which is enough to cause scattered power outages and tree limb damage. Much colder air returns by the evening, with lake effect snow showers.

Accumulating snow is possible on Friday too. Stay tuned for details!
