Another busy week of weather is ahead. The next weather system arrives on Tuesday, with widespread snowfall. The general idea is 4-8" of accumulation, with much higher amounts expected north of the Mohawk Valley. The overall confidence with this one is lower than usual, as we have two low pressure systems in play. The second one is going to draw in the heaviest snow, but the current projections have that taking place east of Central New York. The bottom line is prepare for the usual slippery roads, especially Tuesday evening. We'll keep you posted.

What we feel confident in is the cold.  A blast of frigid air arrives on Wednesday and will stick around through Friday.  Air temperatures are likely going to stay in the teens and single digits during the day and plunge well below zero at night.  Wind chills look to remain -10 to -20 through this three day stretch.  

The bitterly cold temperatures combined with a steady west wind will create a major lake effect event for the Tug Hill and North Country.  The early projects look to be 1-3 feet from Wednesday through Friday.  The bands are expected to stay north of the Mohawk Valley during this stretch of time.
