It was nice to see the sunshine over the past few days. We are in the cloudiest part of the year, with cloudy days outnumbering sunny days more than 6:1. The next weather maker looks to bring a return to snow as we head into Thursday.

We start out Thursday dry, with mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures climb above freezing into the early afternoon ahead of the cold front. The cold front arrives in the early evening and brings a burst of snow to the area. The dynamics along the front aren't quite as strong, so snow isn't expected to be quite as intense as that arctic front that arrived the day before Thanksgiving. Still, a brief burst of snow and poor visibility are possible.

As far as accumulation, a general trace - 2" is expected in and south of the Mohawk Valley. 2-4" are expected just north of the valley, with 4-6" or more in the Tug and Western Adirondacks. Here's the snowfall map:

Colder temperatures look to return on Friday, with highs in the low to mid 20s.
