A Rather Quiet Tuesday; Lake Effect Snow Returns Next Couple Of Days

JAMESTOWN – Today will be rather boring in the weather department as High pressure has started to build in across the Northeast. However, we are keeping our eyes on some lake effect that will set up tomorrow.
Lake effect snow showers will develop along the edge of a clipper system on Wednesday. Snow will organize into a single band and become a bit stronger Wednesday afternoon and night. First starting out near Buffalo, the lake band will shift south into the Southern Tier throughout the night.

Most computer models are showing this lake band moving far north and away from our area on Thursday before the band reemerges Thursday night and settles back into the Southern Tier.
Here are some PRELIMINARY snowfall totals through Thursday afternoon: A good 5 to 7 inches are likely along the highest elevations with 3 to 6 in the lower elevations, 2 to 4 further out to the east.

Keep in mind, these totals are preliminary and are subject to change throughout the day tomorrow. We’ll keep you updated on the latest.
Sunshine returns by the weekend and into early next week but with below average temps hanging out in the lower 30s to kick off the upcoming workweek.
