Unsettled Weather Headed Our Way
Across the region we have entered an unsettled pattern, and that pattern is set to continue this week with numerous storm chances headed our way. First, we will be watching out for some light snow overnight tonight that could leave snow accumulations of up to 3" across the Twin Tiers. This will create some slippery travel across the region for Monday morning as temperatures will be below freezing, so snow will stick to the roadways tonight.
Another storm chance will come Tuesday night and into Wednesday. With this storm, we will be watching out for another chance for accumulating snow across the Twin Tiers but recent trends have trended away from that solution. Northern stream of energy looks to be too slow and the southern stream of energy will be too fast as a ridge over the Atlantic looks to be too flat and can't slow down the southern stream. So, this means we will be tracking some snow showers Tuesday night and into Wednesday with minor accumulations possible.
Then, we will be tracking some rain as we get into the end of the week. A stationary boundary will set up as the Atlantic ridge builds back into our region and a trough over the Western US will allow low pressure to form and move along that boundary. The main hazard with this weekend will be heavy rain, that could possibly lead to some minor flooding across the region. The heaviest of rain looks to remain over the Ohio River Valley, but we could see upwards to 2" of rain from Friday and into Saturday as that boundary sends moisture into the region.
We will continue to update you as more data becomes available so, make sure you stick around and follow along with us!
