Snow again but changes ahead

Snow returns to the region tonight and Thursday, with a break in the weather expected early next week

Posted: Apr 18, 2018 4:52 PM

Snow is back tonight, as a shortwave rolls through the region.  The air is plenty cold to support snow, as it has for the past several days.  Snow is expected to fall steadiest south of the Mohawk Valley, with 1-3" of accumulation by Thursday afternoon.  The highest accumulation and impact is expected to be along the higher terrain, with some of the higher hilltops exceeding 3" of accumulation.

The weather remains windy and cold on Friday and Saturday as this trough sits over Central New York.  The storm itself does push east on Saturday, but we think the low level moisture will keep clouds around in the afternoon.  We're pessimistically calling for clouds and low 40s, but conceed it could be nicer (we'll believe it when we see it too).

The jet stream pushs all the cold offshore by Sunday, bringing temperatures into the 50s across the region.  There's a huge ridge expected to build into the region on Monday and Tuesday and that should bring us a few springlike days.  Sunshine with highs in the upper 50s to near 60.  The next round of rain arrives on Wednesday.
