An arctic cold front passing the region brings the chance for scattered snow showers Tuesday evening. Isolated squalls also possible, which may drop brief heavy snow and reduce visibility. Average snowfall for the Twin Tiers staying under 1″. Temperatures fall into the single digits for overnight lows.

Intervals of sun and clouds continue for Wednesday. Staying in a lake-effect setup, but most of the snowfall staying in western and central New York, which those areas are under Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories. Any snowfall for our viewing area will stay light, under 1″ for most locations. Main concern continues to be below average temperatures. High Wednesday in the low 20s, and lows Wednesday night again into the single digits.

Colder than average temperatures continue through the work week. Highs Thursday into 20s and highs Friday near freezing. Chance for scattered snow showers continues Thursday, but snowfall again staying light. A weak disturbance brings a slight chance for snowfall Friday, but high pressure keeps most of us dry. Warmer temperatures return for the weekend, closer to average for this time of the year. Another storm system makes an impact on the region, increasing our chance for a wintry mix to rain Sunday.
