Widespread snow showers Sunday night will continue into Monday becoming lighter and more scattered throughout the day.

Sunday night, a burst of widespread snow showers moves into Central New York. This will bring areas of
light to moderate snowfall. Overnight, we will accumulate a few inches of snowfall. Plan on needing some
extra time brushing off your car and driving on these snow-covered/wet roads. Here's how much snowfall could
be on the ground when you're heading out the door Monday morning:

Throughout the day Monday, the snow will become lighter and more scattered. This is because our wind
direction will change from Southwest to Northwest. This will bring cold air down from Canada over the warmer
waters of Lake Ontario. The warm and humid air over Lake Ontario will condense and form clouds as this cold
air moves in. These moisture filled clouds will create snowflakes as they travel towards land. As these
clouds move inland and are forced to rise as they travel up into the higher elevations, they will drop the
snow they are holding. This is how lake effect snow bands form and why the highest elevations receive the
most snow. Here's how much snowfall you can expect throughout Monday:

The snow eventually tapers off towards Monday night with just a few lingering snow showers overnight. Drier air moves in Tuesday, which will inhibit any lake effect snow showers from forming. We will just have mostly cloudy skies throughout the day.
