Noon Update: A line of lake effect snow showers are beginning to develop along the Lake Ontario shoreline. This will slowly drop south this afternoon bringing that chance for snow shower activity to the Twin Tiers. Any additional snowfall today is still looking to be on the lighter side.

*** WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY HAS BEEN CANCELED FOR THE TWIN TIERS ***

Wet and heavy snow fell overnight leading to light snow accumulation across the area. The highest snow totals were into the higher terrain while the valley area saw close to an inch. The steady snow will continue to move off the east this morning leading to a period of dry weather this morning. Strong winds out of the northwest sustained at 10-20 mph, with gusts of 25 mph or higher possible, will support the development of lake effect shower activity. Lake effect snow showers will begin to develop this afternoon off of Lake Ontario. Any additional snowfall will remain on the lighter side, with the highest amounts being associated with heavier snow bands. Highs today will be in the mid to upper 30s. The shower activity that lingers tonight will taper off by early Friday morning. Lows will hover 20 degrees.

An area of high pressure will build into the region on Friday ushering in some drier air into the region. Cloud cover will decrease leading to afternoon sunshine. The cooler temperatures and windy conditions will continue; highs in the low to mid-30s. Heading into Easter weekend seasonable temperatures will return; highs both Saturday & Sunday will be in the low to mid-50s. After some morning sunshine cloud cover will increase Saturday afternoon. A weak disturbance will lead to the chance of shower activity Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Shower activity will taper off Easter morning cloud cover will begin to break.

As we head into the new work week we will see some sunshine filtered through mid/high clouds. Temperatures will warm very nicely; highs Monday will be in the mid to upper 50s & by Wednesday we will be in the low 60s. Scattered rain shower chances look to return late Tuesday into Wednesday.
