Cold front moves through the region Tuesday with lingering showers into the early overnight. While a brief downpour is possible, overall rainfall staying light.

Winds turning from southwest to northwest and lows Tuesday night in the mid to upper 20s.

Another cold front moves into the region early Wednesday. Chance for showers continues as winds set us up for lake-effect. Snowfall not the concern, though, but rather temperatures.

A stray shower possible for Wednesday night, otherwise, broken clouds.

Winds in favor of lake-effect showers through Thursday. Snow staying light for us in the Twin Tiers, while portions of Central and Western New York will see several inches of accumulation. Highs Thursday into the low to mid 20s, then lows overnight near 10 degrees. High pressure builds into the region Friday and for the start of the weekend.
