JAMESTOWN – We are coming off the coldest air we’ve seen so far this winter with a brief warmup on the way for Wednesday.
The National Weather Service in Buffalo has posted up a Winter Weather Advisory for all of Western New York, going into effect at 2 AM tonight and running through 2 PM Wednesday afternoon.
The State College NWS has also posted up a Winter Weather Advisory for Warren County, PA lasting until 7 PM Wednesday.
As temps rise throughout the overnight, the potential exists for some freezing rain early in the morning hours of Wednesday. While we’re not expecting this to become a major deal, some of the untreated roadways could become slick for the morning commute. Give yourself some extra time.
Any wintry mix will changeover to all rain for the afternoon hours of Wednesday with some moderate rainfall times. Models point to around a half inch to one inch of overall rainfall.
Another cold front sweeps in behind this system, causing another changeover to snow Wednesday night and Thursday. Insignificant accumulation there; less than half an inch.
Another shot of Arctic air arrives for the end of week as temps drop back into teens for the weekend.
