*A winter weather advisory is in effect for Oneida and Madison Counties from 5 am Friday to 9 am Saturday*
After enjoying a day of full sunshine, the weather is expected to change. Clouds return for Thanksgiving, with highs in the low 40s. Not too cold for this time of year. Rain showers return late Thursday, changing to widespread light snow on Friday. This is all due to an area of low pressure swinging through the region
More winterlike weather is expected as we head into Friday. Low pressure will head to the east, dragging much colder weather behind it. The winds are expected to increase from the northwest, gusting between 20-30 mph for most of the afternoon. Wind gusts could peak up to 40 mph on hilltops. In addition to the wind, widespread light snow is expected. A general inch or two of accumulation is expected. The combination of wind and drifting snow could lead to poor visibility, at times.
Snow continues into Friday night and early Saturday, coming to an end Saturday morning. A generally cold weather pattern settles in for next week, with high temperatures in the 30s and overnight lows in the low 20s.
