Clouds increase overnight ahead of the winter storm. Could see some initial light snow very early Tuesday morning across the Southern Tier.

Tonight’s Lows:

    Central New York: 10s/20

    North Country: -/+0s

    Southern Tier: 21 - 26

Snow will spread across Upstate New York from southwest to northeast throughout Tuesday  morning with bands of heavy snow in the early afternoon. Snowfall rates could be between 1 to 2 inches per hour.



Roads will be snow covered, making it a slow go on area roadways. Visibility could also be reduced with blowing snow under windy conditions. Snow is most persistent across the North Country, as there won’t be a changeover to sleet/freezing rain until the evening. Central New York and the Southern Tier see the changeover mid/late afternoon.
Adding ice on top of snow will increase slick conditions and make snow heavy to shovel. Tuesday evening, many areas see a change to rain with temperatures warming up.

Tuesday’s Highs:

    Central New York: 23 - 29

    North Country: 10s/20s

    Southern Tier: 27 - 32

Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, rain changes back to snow.

Snowfall totals:

The storm comes to an end early Wednesday morning, but behind it, lake enhanced snow showers develop. Thursday, many areas see dry but cloudy conditions. The workweek ends with another wintry-mixed event on Friday as temperatures climb through the 30s. The weekend is mainly dry, with colder air arriving for the beginning of next week.
