The first snowflakes of the season for some...

Much colder weather arrives tomorrow and brings the chance for snow showers to the higher elevations.

Posted: Oct. 16, 2018 5:49 PM

Much colder weather is on the way as an arctic front barrels through early Wednesday morning. This front brings scattered rain showers, along with a push of much colder air. By the afternoon, temperatures will only climb into the 40s. The cold air will trigger heavy lake effect rain, most likely in the Mohawk Valley Wednesday afternoon.

Wednesday night, lake effect rain showers are likely going to turn to snow showers along the higher elevation. The wind direction shifts to the NNW, bringing the bands to the west and south of Utica. Drier air works in too, shriking the band. Clearing Wednesday night will help bring temperatures into the 20s.

A cold Thursday is expected, with sunshine and highs only near 40.  The weather is expected to warm up briefly for Friday.
