Sunny start, slippery finish to weekend

The weather looks beautiful on Saturday, but a round of snow is expected to arrive early Sunday.

Posted: Mar. 8, 2019 5:01 PM

The weather this weekend looks quiet different between Saturday and Sunday. We're expecting a pleasant day on Saturday, with sunshine and highs near 40 degrees. The strong March sun will melt snow and make it feel like early spring - something we haven't had much experience with so far this March.

Low pressure passes west on Saturday night and brings a round of precipitation to the region. This is expected to start out as snow, before mixing with and changing to sleet, freezing rain, and plain rain. There's still some disagreement in data, but it does look like an inch or two of snow is possible across most of the area before the changeover, with several inches possible north of the Mohawk Valley. Here's a look at the latest snowfall map:

Watch out for tricky travel early Sunday morning.  Temperatures are expected to climb into the 30s on Sunday, with only a limited amount of snow melt. Temperatures remain in the 30s on Monday and Tuesday with light snow, before the weather turns much milder for the middle of next week.
