A winter weather advisory is in effect for most of central New York for Wednesday night into Thursday. Widespread snow looks to break out beginning around 10 p.m. - midnight. Snow becomes steady overnight, with a general 2-4" on the ground by morning. Additional snow continues through Thursday afternoon with an arctic front. Temperatures will stay in the 30s for most of the day.

Here's a look at the expected snowfall from Wednesday night through Thursday evening:

A burst of snow is expected as an arctic front arrives Thursday evening. A brief burst of snow and gusty winds will accompany the front. Temperatures will begin to drop rapidly Thursday night into Friday. Overnight lows fall into the single digits.

The cold weather will be here on Friday. Temperatures are expected to stay in the single digits for most of the day, with highs near 10. Thankfully, it's not expected to be very windy on Friday, but the wind we do expect will bring wind chills to or below zero. Temperatures fall well below zero Friday night, with warmer weather returning starting Saturday.

The coldest air doesn't look to last long. Temperatures look to climb back into the 30s by Sunday, with more light snow.
