Spring snow returns this weekend

Cold enough this weekend for a brief return to snow.

Posted: Apr 25, 2019 4:35 PM

Another glorious spring day here in Central New York with sunshine and highs in the 60s. Unfortunately it doesn't look to last much longer, as big changes are expected. Clouds gradually build in this evening ahead of the next weather event, which will cause abrupt changes in our weather heading into the weekend.

The culprit is an area of low pressure - a powerful one. This time, the low swings right over our area, bringing widespread rain to the region on Friday morning. Cloudy with scattered rain showers Friday afternoon, with highs in the 60s. A strong cold front will trail the storm system and bring another round of heavy rain on Friday night. The push of cool air behind the storm will arrive this weekend.

The ingredients are there for the possibility of snow this weekend. The first and best chance looks to be Saturday in the wake of Friday's storm. The leftover moisture in place along with some help from the lakes and sufficiently cold air should bring widespread rain and snow showers to the region. Accumulation looks light.

The next chance of snow arrives on Sunday, with a small area of low pressure passing to the south. The track of this low will determine the extent of snow, and at this point it doesn't look to bring much of an accumulation.

Back to warmer weather and sunshine for Monday! Any accumulation over the weekend isn't expected to last. It is April!
