Wintry mix tonight

A mix of snow, rain, and some ice is possible tonight

Posted: Dec 30, 2020 2:39 PM

2020 looks to end in an active weather pattern.  Tonight, an area of low pressure passing north will bring a round of snow and rain, with a light mix of ice.  This is all being driven by an area of low pressure passing to the north and west of our region.  This drags a warm front through the region this evening.  Snow is expectd to develop this evening, mainly north of the Mohawk Valley.  Here, we could see a brief mix of sleet and/or freezing rain, as warmer weather arrives later this evening. Watch out for a few slippery spots, especially on untreated surfaces.

A cold front moves through tonight, bringing a round of rain and snow to the region.  With temperatures in the upper 30s overnight, most of the lower elevations will see rain, mixing with snow late tonight.  Snow accumulations in the lower elevations look to be less than 2".  The higher elevations will see more snow than rain, with between 2-4" of accumulation.  

The last day of 2020 looks relatively quiet, with lake effect snow showers early.  Little accumulation is expected.  We are tracking dry weather for New Years Eve night, but 2021 looks to start out busy.  Another area of low pressure arrives Friday night, bringing the potential of a widespread, heavy wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain.
