A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until Monday afternoon for the Twin Tiers. 

Plan on slippery travel early Monday morning as patchy freezing drizzle could mix with snowfall for your commute. The low-pressure system moves eastward, and cold air advects in behind the system, keeping scattered snow showers in the forecast through the afternoon hours and tapering off in the evening. High temperatures Monday hover around freezing and will drop through the afternoon as colder air works in. Winds out of the northwest turn breezy, anywhere from 5-15 mph. Additional snowfall amounts range anywhere from 0.10-1″ with lower amounts for areas in the northern tier and higher amounts in northern Steuben and Schuyler counties. 

Overnight lows drop to near 10 degrees with winds out of the northwest, anywhere from 5-10 mph. Skies will be mostly to partly cloudy and flurries taper off as high pressure builds eastward Tuesday. 

A mixture of sunshine and clouds expect for Tuesday as high pressure resides over the region. Temperatures will struggle to reach 30 degrees, mainly ranging in the mid-20s as a northwesterly wind flow ushers in colder air. The weather pattern turns unsettled Wednesday and Thursday as a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow moves in from the southwest. Highs Wednesday range in the low-30s. Any precipitation seen Thursday will be mainly rain as temperatures climb above normal to the upper-40s. Looking at some sunshine returning Friday and Saturday with temperatures in the low to mid-40s. Welcoming the chance for rain showers Sunday.
