Saturday morning temperatures are in the lower 20s to upper teens for all of us in the Twin Tiers. Most of us are cloudy with the exception for locations in Schuyler, Tompkins, and Northern Chemung counties dealing with lake effect snow showers. Winds are making it feel as though we are in the single digits for most of us.

Lake-effect showers possible Saturday with snow squall potential during the afternoon and evening. If a snow squall develops, we could see a quick 1″ of accumulation in those areas. Snow squalls also mean gusty winds causing blowing snow with reduced visibility. Winds still out of the northwest with gusts of 20 mph or more possible for the afternoon. Highs into the mid to upper 20s, but wind chill temperatures in the teens for the afternoon. Lingering showers for the overnight and lows into the teens.

Drying out Sunday as high pressure builds into the area. Partly to mostly sunny and highs near 30 degrees. Increasing clouds overnight and lows in the low to mid 20s. Chance for showers returns early next week as a frontal system moves into the area. Chance for both rain and snow Monday and Tuesday as temperatures warm near 40 degrees for afternoon highs. Slight chance for showers Wednesday and Thursday. Another system approaches the region for the end of the workweek.
