Today we start out dry with cloudy skies and scattered flurries. The snow storm we have been waiting on will lift up from the southwest, and will arrive by this afternoon. The snow will become steadier towards evening and will likely become heavy at night. Snowfall rates Saturday night into Sunday morning could approach 2-3" an hour in some heavy bands that are expected to pass through. Travel conditions will be hazardous overnight.

Periods of heavy snow will continue into Sunday morning with the winds expected to become blustery.  The snow will gradually taper through the morning, but significant blowing and drifting is likely through the afternoon, which will continue to result in poor traveling conditions.  Total snowfall across the region will average between 14-19" with localized higher amounts possible, especially in higher elevations.

Temperatures will drop through the teens with real feel temperatures dropping below zero.  The northerly winds could also result in some additional light snow accumulations from the Finger Lakes. Overnight wind chills on Sunday could drop BELOW 20 DEGREES.

It'll remain bitterly cold on Monday with highs only in the single digits.  Skies will remain mostly cloudy with the chance for flurries.  Partly sunny skies are likely Tuesday followed by the chance for mixed rain and snow showers Wednesday as temperatures rise into the mid 30s.

Stay safe out there!
