Weather Blog: Lake effect sprinkles or mountain flurries Tuesday

Local News

Now that we have wrapped up the month of October and the final numbers are in we can officially say that it was a warm one, cracking into the top 5 warmest Octobers on record (#4 on the list)

Although November is starting off with seasonably cool temperatures it’s not forecasted to stay that way. Climate Prediction Center’s 8-14 day outlook shows above average temperatures across the northeast!

Today’s forecast brings a batch of some lake effect valley sprinkles or mountain flurries (above 1500′) trailing down wind of Lake Ontario under a southwest wind (that’s much lighter than yesterday). Accumulations will stick to the mountains, and shower chances remain very isolated that not many folks actually see a lot of precip.

As our winds shift to the northwest with an approaching disturbance overnight our lake effect action evolves into some mountain enhanced upslope rain/snow showers, even a little bit of mix could reach the lower levels of our valley.

This disturbance also comes with a reinforced shot of cooler air with temperatures for Thursday only climbing into the low 40’s with high pressure bringing sunshine!

Have a great Tuesday
