Snow picks up in coverage and intensity Monday evening. As the radar fills back in, many areas east and south Syracuse will find an icy mix of sleet and freezing rain. This is extends down across the Southern Tier.

As temperatures drop, roads freezing over will make for some slippery spots. Add sleet and freezing rain that some of us find, with snow accumulating on top, and travel through the overnight will be very difficult.

WEATHER ALERTS: Central New York | North Country | Southern Tier

Any mixed precipitation changes over to snow, and we’ll continue to find accumulation through Tuesday morning.

Monday Night Lows:

  • Central New York: 20 - 26
  • North Country: 14 - 20
  • Southern Tier: 22 - 27

The heaviest and steadiest snow will be out of the region by Tuesday morning. We’ll find some scattered snow showers around. Eventually we find lake effect snow setting up south and southeast of Lake Ontario.

Much colder air funnels in and most struggle to get out of the 20s.

Tuesday Highs:

  • Central New York: 23 - 28
  • North Country: 19 - 25
  • Southern Tier: 24 - 29

Snow showers continue but weaken into Wednesday morning. At this point, temperatures will have bottomed out in the teens and single digits. When factoring in how blustery it will be, wind chill values could be as low as the single digits above and below zero. Highs for most in the 20s on Wednesday.

Thursday is cloudy but mainly dry. Some areas could find some lighter lake effect snow off of Lake Ontario. Highs rebound the 30s.

Could find some lighter snow showers on Friday with highs in the 30s.

It turns cold again by the weekend, but high pressure takes over. That will bring us sun.

Temperatures improve into early next week.
