Leftover rain/snow showers Tuesday night into Wednesday morning are expected to taper with highs Wednesday afternoon ending up in the 30s and 40s.

More active weather looks to develop Wednesday night and Thursday as a clipper system works through. This will bring some rain, snow, stronger winds and eventually, much colder temperatures.

A strong northwesterly flow will be conducive for not only developing lake effect snow, but it will also help to usher in significantly colder air than we’ve gotten accustomed to recently. Thursday will be blustery and colder with temperatures falling into the 20s.

Temperatures on Friday won’t manage to do any better than the single digits and teens.

This should be just the beginning of a wintry pattern setting up. We’ll need to keep a close eye on a potential winter storm with widespread impacts this weekend.​
