Our snowy week continues here in Central New York, with one more round of widespread snow expected on Friday. The weather system that's expected to move in is called a clipper, or Alberta Clipper. We see these systems often in the winter. They don't bring us big snowfalls, but they do bring us some snow, followed by cold air.

Snow begins on Friday morning, just in time for the morning commute. Snow becomes steadier throughout the day, heaviest in the late morning through early afternoon. High temperatures climb into the low 30s. Total snowfall looks to range between 2-4" for most areas, with lesser amounts to the south. Here's a look at the snowfall forecast:

Snow comes to an end Friday evening, with some light lake effect snow expected Friday night. Temperatures are expected to drop into the teens by Saturday morning. Saturday is looking cold, with highs only in the 20s. Temperatures are expected to climb back into the 30s on Sunday. Both weekend days look dry, with partly sunny skies.

Looking ahead, rain and warmer temperatures are in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday. There could be a significant snow melt across the region, with the possibility of some localized flooding. Stay tuned.
