Breezy northwest winds continue Tuesday morning with snow showers tapering off to scattered flurries. A passing shortwave and building high pressure keep the chance for light lake effect snow flurries in the forecast through the morning. Lake effect snow wraps up today but blowing and drifting snow is still possible as northwest winds remain breezy, anywhere from 5-15 mph. Wind gusts near 20 mph or greater at times is possible.  Winds out of the northwest keeping air temperatures below average for this time of the year, in the mid-20s. Partial sunshine will be realized this afternoon as an incoming dry air mass works into the region. 

Increasing clouds overnight with temperatures dropping near 20 degrees. Winds will be lighter out of the north, anywhere between 5-10 mph. Mainly dry through the overnight hours before our next round of snow pushes through Wednesday morning.

Another round of accumulating snow is possible Wednesday from the northern tier in northern Pennsylvania into central New York. Snow impacts the Twin Tiers during the morning hours through midday from southwest to northeast. Total snowfall amounts range between 1-6″ by early Thursday morning with snow duration and amounts will be highest for areas north of the Twin Tiers. The batch of snow showers looks to hug the New York and Pennsylvania border through Wednesday afternoon. The Southern Tier may see on average between 2-6″, whereas the Northern Tier may see a 0.50-2″ of snow. This clipper system may cause difficult travel and lead to snow-covered roadways. High temperatures Wednesday reach the mid to upper-20s. Unsettled weather continues for the end of the work week and into the weekend with both snow and rainfall possible heading into the weekend.
