The rollercoaster of temperatures continues for today, with most areas already in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees this morning. With a southerly wind, temperatures should have no problem getting near 50 degrees this afternoon, despite the lack of sunshine. Cold front moves in during the overnight, bringing in some light rain. It will not be a long duration event and precipitation should stay light, so flooding does not seem like a big concern.

Once the cold front passes on Friday, temperatures will drop into the low 30s throughout the day with a few afternoon snow showers. The winds will pick up out of the Northwest, creating wind chills in the teens. Light lake effect snow possible to the south of the Mohawk Valley during the afternoon and evening with light accumlation.

Skies clear out Friday night and temperatures drop into the single digits, creating areas of black ice by Saturday morning. The weather looks quiet for most of the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday but all eyes are on Sunday. As of right now, doesn't look like much, if any, snow across the region as the storm is too far to our east but something we are keeping an eye on. Regardless of how much snow we get on Sunday. that snow will be long gone as temperatures soar into the 50s by Tuesday and Wednesday.

For those wondering, here is where we officially stand for snowfall for the season. Another note, Syracuse is over 100" and the Tug Hill over 300".
