Leftover Lake Effect Rain And Snow Showers Through The Weekend

JAMESTOWN – The storm system that impacted the region over the past 24 hours has high tailed towards the Northeast into New England.
In terms of the snowfall totals, the event played out very well with what we were expecting. As advertised, totals of around one foot were observed in Allegany County, with totals around 5 inches in much of Chautauqua County.

Even though the storm system as rolled on, Lake Erie will be generating a response in term of lake effect rain with snow showers through the day today. At most, maybe another 2 inches of snow accumulation is possible across the Southern Tier. Rather insignificant, compared to what we’ve just went through.

The chance exists for some snow showers each and every day over the next several days, but nothing of a big deal. Light accumulations are possible but won’t be a showstopper.

Thanksgiving Day Forecast: The Holidays are fast approaching with Thanksgiving just a week away. Here is our early call on the forecast for Thanksgiving Day:
Models are suggesting High pressure builds back in across the Northeast by mid next week, leading to some partly cloudy skies. The wind pattern is favoring a southernly flow aloft, meaning temps will be closer to 40, which is still below average but “warmer” than it has been.

Keep in mind, this forecast is subject to change so we will keep you updated throughout next week.
