Weather: Mixed bag of precip on our doorstep

Don’t let the little bit of sunshine this morning confuse you. Rain, sleet and snow is barreling towards our neck of the woods.

Clouds are already filling in as a large area of precipitation works in, here is the break down. Saint Lawrence Valley will see the first drops around lunch time, then spreading into the Champlain Valley by 3pm and making it to the NEK by 5 pm.

It’s all associated with a surface low pressure that’s strengthening out over the Great Lakes, and a secondary coastal low-pressure system skirting by Cape Cod and the Island.

So who is going to see rain and who is going to see snow? Well its all dependent on your elevation.

The valleys will likely see all rain, but as you move up in elevation so will the snowfall totals.

Here's the break down

Valleys: Dusting-1”

Above 1000’: 1-4”

Above 2500’: 4-8”+

These two areas of moisture move through quickly, taper off to showers by late morning Saturday. After that any left over moisture will transition into scattered light snow showers for Saturday afternoon and wrapping up by evening.

Sunday brings with it surface high pressure which mean some sunshine, but behind that system, chilly air fills in, and temperatures will barely break into the 30’s with windchills feeling more like the teens and 20’s.

Enjoy your weekend!
