Less Than a Week After Temperatures Near 80, Snow Possible in Central New York
Say it ain't snow! Less than a week after enjoying temperature near 80, snow is in the Central New York forecast.
Cold weather is expected late Thursday night, April 16, as temperatures fall into the 30s. The National Weather Service says snow is even possible, especially in the higher elevations. "If the low slows more some snow accumulation is possible across the higher terrain."
The slow moving coastal system is expected to hang around for much of the day on Friday, especially central and eastern New York. It looks like it'll be cold enough for more wet snow, at least the morning hours Friday, especially the higher elevations. "A great deal of uncertainty remains on exact precipitation amounts and any possible snow amounts."
Snow in April and even May is not uncommon for Central New York. The good news is, it will probably melt fairly fast and then we'll be complaining it's too hot. The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a steamy and stormy summer. June to September will be "ice cream melting and thunder filled."
