March is starting out cold! Temperatures this week are expected to stay 10-15 degrees below average, with highs in the upper teens to low 20s on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

We're also tracking lake effect snow. The band develops Monday night and brings a light accumulation to areas north of the Mohawk Valley (trace - 2", with 2-4" along the Tug Hill). The band is expected to shift north on Tuesday, under a southwesterly wind.

On Tuesday evening, a wind shift is expected (an arctic front). This will bring a burst of snow to the area. A low grade snow squall is also possible. The winds shift Tuesday night, bringing lake effect snow to the region. The bands look to be near or south of the Mohawk Valley, with a few additional inches expected.

We'll continue to track lake effect snow showers on Wednesday and Thursday, before the weather warms up for Friday and Saturday.
