First Widespread Winter Weather of the Season Will Make Sloppy Mid Week Commute
The first round of snow in Central New York was no more than dusting for some and nonexistent for others. But hang on. More is on the way in the first widespread winter weather of the season.
A mix of snow, rain, and sleet is possible later this week. The latest system is expected to move into Central New York late on November 15 and last until the morning of Wednesday, November 16. The National Weather Service said it should produce more snow than a wintry mix across the region.
Any snow or ice accumulations will be light, however, this will be the first widespread winter weather this season and may impact the Wednesday morning commute. A winter weather advisory may be needed at a later time for some locations.
As with most snow storms in New York, the higher the elevation, the more snow usually falls.
Moving Out & Warming Up
It looks like the storm won't hang around long and if there is any accumulating snow, it won't last very long. So, if you can wait, you won't even have to shovel. The warm temperatures will do the work for you.
The good news is that the system should quickly pull away on Wednesday and with high temperatures climbing into the low 40s, the roads should be at least cleared by later in the day.
The warm weather won't last long either. Below-normal temperatures and lake-effect snow showers are expected through the end of the week and into the weekend.
