The first snow accumulation of the season

Light snow fell last night and brought the first snow accumulation to the Mohawk Valley.

Posted: Nov 13, 2017 5:34 PM

Well, it's about time, right?  After a warm, sunny, snow free October, we saw our first snowflakes over the past week, with the first official accumulation taking place Sunday night for Utica.  Here was the scene in North Utica around 9:30am:

As with almost all early season events, it wasn't a big event.  1.0" goes in the book.  Average snowfall in November is 7.2".

Looking ahead, the weather stays very quiet early in the week.  Clouds will be stubborn, as they usually are this time of year.  We're expecting generally cloudy skies Monday night, Tuesday, and Tuesday night.  The weather should clear out ahead of a cold front on Wednesday, with highs in the upper 40s.  The cold front on Wednesday night brings us a mix of rain and snow, with some lake effect snow showers on Thursday.  The setup isn't great, with only marginal conditions at this point.

A larger storm is expected over the weekend, which is already getting a lot of attention.  At this point, it's too early to tell what the impact will be.  Stay tuned.
