A Few White Flakes Late Today, Warming Up By The Weekend

JAMESTOWN – A band of light snow will develop throughout the afternoon today as a weak clipper system passes on through the region.

The snow will first start in the Niagara Frontier north of Buffalo and work its way down into the Southern Tier by this evening before coming to an end early Wednesday.

As we’ve been stating, this snow is going to be rather weak so accumulations will be far less than impressive. Most areas could see a dusting and that’s about it. The better chance for anything closer to an inch will be along the highest hills.

The majority of the day on Wednesday will be dry with a few peaks of sun possible. 

A boundary moving towards Western New York will be a focal point for a few rain and or snow showers Wednesday night into early Thursday.

Those will taper off throughout the morning on Thursday, leaving the second half of the day rather useable.

As a southerly wind aloft begins to set up on Friday, that will take our temperatures and boost them up into 40s. 

A system squeaking by to our south will produce a few rain showers Saturday and Sunday. In combination with the warmer temps and the advent of the rainfall, that could wash away some of the snowpack we have.
