The calendar says winter officialy begins Thursday at 11:28am. Could have fooled us! We're in the thick of it with winter weather here in CNY. Snow squalls this morning caused school days and slick roads. The weather is expected to stay quiet Wednesday night and all day Thursday. It will be cold. Temperatures are expected to bottom in the teens and single digits Wednesday morning and climb into the 20s by afternoon.

While we enjoy the break in weather, another storm will be brewing to the west. This area of low pressure will track through Central New York. The precipitation ahead of the storm will fall in this cold air, and the cold air isn't expected to move very quickly. What that means is snow, and several inches of it for Friday. The data keeps trending colder too. We're expecting snow to last most of Friday, perhahs through the evening, before turning to sleet and freezing rain. Here's a look at the snowfall forecast for the first part of this event:

Sleet and freezing rain will bring slick roads Friday evening through Friday night, before temperatures finally climb above freezing for Saturday. The storm track trending east means the warm up will be relatively brief. The weather looks dry for Christmas Eve, but we're also watching a storm developing to our east for Christmas Day. We've been following this all week and most of the data keeps the heavy snow from this storm out of our region, but it's still several days away. We'll keep you posted.
