We're in the heart of the winter season here in Central New York. There's plenty of snow on the ground, cold temperatures, and plenty more to come over the next seven days. Here's a breakdown of the different weather systems that we're tracking and what they could bring:
- System 1 - Saturday night. A weak area of low pressure will pass south and east of Central New York on Saturday night. This brings widespread light snowfall to the region. Most areas will see 1-2" of accumulation. The snow is expected to end early Sunday morning.
- System 2 - Monday/Tuesday. Another wave of low pressure will develop and pass along the Atlantic Coast. This arrives on Monday and brings light snow to the region. A second, stronger, wave develops on Monday night, drawing widespread, steadier, heavier snow to the region. We're expecting significant accumulation (6"+) and will post a snowfall map with more details later this weekend.
- System 3 - Thursday. Yet another wave of low pressure arrives late next week. This one will likely bring another round of snowfall to the region. It's further into the future and it's the most difficult of the three to predict. There are hints of mixing here, but that's TBD.
We will continue to keep you updated on each one of these systems as we get better, more reliable information closer to each event. Stay tuned.
