Temperatures look to be a bit warmer than were we have been this passed week as we head into Saturday. High temperatures will still remain below the seasonal average but the area should tap out into the lower 20s by the afternoon. None the less, still a chilly day expected with cloudy sky and the chance of light snow moving into the area. As a clipper system tracks eastward, the Twin Tiers and Finger Lakes Region will get the chance for a few scattered snow showers. By the afternoon we track yet another arctic front, that will not only bring a second round of possible snow, but also frigid high temperatures.
Light and low accumulation is expected for the area, with snowfall totals ranging from none to one inch.
Heading into New Years Eve, high temperatures will be much much colder. Arctic air drops high temperatures in the lower teens with highs expected to struggle to max out near 10 through the afternoon. Conditions remain fairly dry with a mix of sun and clouds, but temperature will be uncomfortably cool at times especially when factoring in wind chill's blowing approximately 10-15 mpg from the northwest. Heading overnight New Years Eve into the first day of 2018, low temperatures are expected to bottom out below zero. If heading out for any plans make sure to bundle up!
