Good evening folks, I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day weekend! As we prepare for the week ahead we need to keep the umbrella handy and for some the snow shovel!
A pesky low-pressure system will move south of Southern New England early this week, and it will make it feel like winter once again. The storm will pull a colder air mass south out of Canada, allowing for snow to fall across the higher elevations. The good news is the ground is pretty warm, which will make it hard for snow to accumulate. But that will not always be the case in communities from the mid-slopes to the mountain tops! The area of low pressure moves away we will still continue to see minor rain activity through Wednesday.
As I mentioned yesterday, there is a larger upper-level disturbance that will continue to rotate in weak front providing us with hit and miss rain for the second half of the work week.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy, overnight lows fall to the middle 40s. Wind: East 5mph.
Monday: Cloudy, spotty showers across western NY, more numerous showers expected late afternoon/night. Afternoon high, the upper 50s. Wind: Southeast to Northeast 10-15mph.
Monday Night: Scattered valley rain and mountain snow showers. Overnight low, the upper 30s. Wind: Northeast 5mph.
Tuesday: Valley rain showers and mountain snow showers. Light accumulation in areas above 1,500′ with 1-3″ in areas around 2,000′, with peaks closing in on 3-6″. Roads in elevated areas likely will become slick. Afternoon highs will be in the 40s. Wind: North 10mph.
Wednesday: Clouds and light rain wraps up. Afternoon high, low to middle 50s.
Thursday/Friday: Clouds along with a chance of a passing shower, afternoon high near 60°.
Have a great week,
