This weekend is going to play out remarkably different compared to last weekend. Instead of sunshine and highs in the 70s, our local weather is going to look more like a typical November weekend. Saturday starts out with a few snow flurries in the air as a weak cold front departs our area. Clouds give way to sunshine by the afternoon, but it's going to be chilly, with highs only in the low 40s. Still, not bad weather to put up the Christmas lights or rake the last of the leaves:
The weather changes as we head into Sunday as the next wave of low pressure arrives. Windy weather is expected to develop along hilltops south of the Mohawk Valley. We could see wind gusts in these areas over 40mph. The Mohawk Valley is not expected to be as windy Sunday, as this area is sheltered from a strong south wind. Widespread rain is expected Sunday afternoon through Sunday night.
Much cooler weather arrives on Monday, with scattered lake effect rain and snow showers. Highs climb into the low 40s. The best chance of any accumulating snow looks to be Monday night and early Tuesday, but at this point it doesn't look significant. Cold weather settles in for the middle of next week, with highs in the 30s. The average high for this time of year is in the mid 40s.
