Here we go again.  Another round of snow squalls are expected to impact Central New York on Wednesday.

An arctic front arrives in the middle of Wednesday, bringing a burst of snow, whiteout conditions, and gusty winds. This lasts between 15-30 minutes. In the wake of the main squall, much colder weather. Temperatures climb to near 30 early in the day, then drop into the low 20s and teens by the evening. Windy with scattered lake effect snow showers on Wednesday afternoon and evening. Total accumulations look to range between 1-2" for most of the Mohawk and Southern Valleys, with 2-4" or more of snow north of the valley.

In addition to snow and cold, strong winds will develop Wednesday afternoon.  A west wind is expected to bring peak gusts between 30-40 mph.

The really cold weather is fleeting, as temperatures are expected to skyrocket into the 50s by Saturday.
