Weather: Snow chances picking up (12/8 AM)

Becoming partly sunny Friday

Good morning! Happy Friday!

Feeling like you missed out on recent snows? Well, you’re in luck! Opportunities for that white stuff are increasing as we head into mid December.

Friday, lake-effect snow showers streamers finally scoot north of the Canadian border, but not before dropping another 1-4″ of snow stretching from southern and central St. Lawrence and Franklin counties (NY). At times, that line stretches into Vermont with minimal additional accumulation anticipated. That sky becomes partly sunny by this afternoon with a high temp in the low to mid 30s. Light south wind. Tonight, mostly clear to partly cloudy. Mid to low 20s.

Saturday starts off partly sunny, but clouds increase by midday with snow on the way Saturday night into Sunday. A low developing off the Atlantic coast will hug the shoreline and move northeast. It will allow for snow to pivot back to the northwest easing into New Hampshire, eastern and central Vermont, up to about the Green Mountains. A couple of inches are possible, making for slippery, snow-covered roads Sunday morning. Sunday night into Monday, scattered snow showers roll from west to east with just a dusting to an inch or two likely across northern New York and into western Vermont. Low 30s.

Monday night, a Clipper-type system scoots off the Great Lakes and approaches with widespread, shovel-able snow falling through Tuesday. Amounts? Timing? All TBD with model discrepancies, but consider this your early heads up! We’ll keep you updated right here and on-air. 

Have a fabulous weekend!
