Spring-like warmth has moved into Central New York ahead of a cold front associated with a strong low pressure system located north of Michigan. Temperatures are already in the 50s, but should not rise too much more thanks to clouds and some showers. Expect highs in the mid 50s. Based on the latest radar trends, it looks like most of the morning will probably be dry. By afternoon, showers will increase with a period of rain likely in the mid/late afternoon as the cold front approaches. Temperatures will start falling this evening, ending u pin the mid 30s by dawn tomorrow. Another batch of precipitation will move through overnight. Uncertainty exists with this precipitation because temperatures will be right on the threshold between wet and white (or icy). After midnight, I am expecting a mix of rain and snow, with some pockets of sleet or even freezing rain. The main area of precipitation will move out by dawn, but mixed precipitation showers will continue through the morning and early afternoon hours Friday as temperatures hold steady in the mid 30s.
Later Friday and into Friday night, yet another batch of precipitation will come at us, this time as some snow. The main area of this precipitation will likely end up to our south, but we still could pick up a couple inches by Saturday morning. High pressure will build in for the weekend, with high temperatures near 30º and lows in the 20s and teens. I do expect some sun, especially later Saturday and early Sunday. By Sunday evening, another storm system will be approaching. Warm air will again move into the area, though our temperatures should max out in the low 40s on Monday. This will also make for another sloppy, mixed precipitation event with rain, snow and possible some ice. Arctic cold should move into the region by the middle of the week, with high temperatures struggling to get to the mid 20s.
