Spring has come early in Central New York, but it looks like it will come to a temporary hault. A round of widespread heavy rain arrives on Thursday and changes to snow Thursday night and Friday.

The culprit is an area of low pressure, developing along the Atlantic Coast and pulling in cold air from the northwest. This is called a nor'easter because of the track it takes along the Atlantic Coast. Not all Nor'easters produce very heavy snowfall. We do expect some snow from this one, especially in the higher elevations.

Rain becomes widespread on Thursday, with temperatures in the 40s. Rain looks to switch to snow, first in the higher elevations Thursday evening, then to the lower elevations Thursday night. Widespread snow looks to continue to fall through early Friday. Rain and snow continues through Friday afternoon, before tapering off Friday evening.

Any accumulation that we do get is expected to melt over the weekend, with high temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
