Thursday's Almanac: Sunrise 7:30 AM Sunset 4:37 PM Average High: 36 Average Low: 20 Record High: 63 (1984) Record Low: -1 (1951)
Clouds will stick around tonight and with an upper level system approaching from the west, scattered snow showers are possible. Expect overnight temperatures to drop into the mid and upper 20s. Any accumulations tonight will be light with up to 1" possible, especially across the higher elevations.
Low level moisture will remain in place Thursday with mostly cloudy skies. A few more snow showers are also possible. Temperatures will come down a bit with highs in the low to mid 30s. There's the chance for a lingering flurry on Friday, otherwise expect lingering clouds with highs in the mid 30s.
Limited sunshine is finally expected on Saturday as high pressure slides across southern Canada. Unfortunately, the sunshine won't last long as clouds associated with a storm system over the deep south begin to drift our way by Saturday evening. The latest guidance continues to show the storm system pushing off the Carolina Coast on Sunday and remaining far enough to our south to have little impact on our weather. We're currently forecasting mostly cloudy skies on Sunday with a slight chance for snow showers.
An active weather pattern will take shape next week, bringing a variety of weather to the Twin Tiers. Low pressure off the Southeast Coast will push more clouds our way on Monday with the chance for scattered rain and snow showers Monday night into early Tuesday. A stronger storm system will develop over the Mississippi Valley on Tuesday and will head north towards the Great Lakes. This will put us on the mild side of the storm with showers likely on Tuesday, followed by a period of heavier rain with windy conditions for Christmas Eve Day. As the storm lifts into Canada, colder temperatures will wrap around the storm, dropping our temperatures for Christmas Day and giving us the chance for snow showers.
