A Quieter Thursday Is On Tap, Slight Warmup To Ring In December

JAMESTOWN – The cleanup continues across the Southern Tier today as significant lake effect snow fell over the past 72 hours. The good news is, it’s a lot calmer today to get out there and do some plowing or shoveling.
These are some of the official snowfall totals from the entire event, starting Tuesday and lasting through Wednesday evening. Some spots in the hilly terrain flirted with 3 feet of overall accumulation, with the lowest amounts along the Lake Erie shoreline and areas further east in Allegany County away from the lake influence.

The chance remains for a few flurries through the afternoon but the majority of the day will be dry but cloudy. Do not count on much, if any, sunshine for today.
A boundary squeaking by to our south will produce a few rain and snow showers early on Friday with some sleet mixed in at times. All precipitation should come to end before parade time.

Saturday starts the final month of the year and we will be saying hello to December in a mild fashion. As a southernly wind sets back up, that will take out temperatures and boost them up into the 40s for Saturday and the 50s for Sunday. The potential exists for some snowmelt each day, along with some rain showers.
