Outside of a few lingering snow showers the snow is done but the cold and wind have decided to stay. Temperatures will fall slowly overnight while northwest winds keep kicking 10-20mph. By bus stop & AM commute time Friday, wind chills will be around -20° in the Daks & NEK and around -10° to -5° everywhere else. Friday afternoon we’ll get a little sunshine but it stays cold with highs near 15° while the wind chill stays below 0°
Friday night & Saturday a weak, quick clipper moves through. Light snow will start late Friday and continue through Saturday evening. Totals at this point look to be around 1-3″; nothing major but enough to cause some slow downs. Our hi-res model has shown signs that a few snow squalls are possible over northern NY & VT Saturday afternoon, we all know what squalls can do. Highs Saturday will be much warmer than Friday, most climb close to 30°. We’ll have a brief lull in the action Sunday morning before another, more powerful, storm takes aim at us Sunday afternoon. There will continue to be some model wobbling with this one as we get closer. However, the way it looks now is that it’s trending colder. This would favor more snow than mixing that lasts through the day Monday. It’s too early for “how much?” talk but regardless of snow or mix, it’s very likely we’re going to be very messy late Sunday & Monday. Stay tuned!
We’ll quiet down Valentine’s Day before we wind up with daily shots at snow showers Wednesday & Thursday.
