JAMESTOWN – High pressure ridge has built back in across the Northeast which is clearing out the cloud cover. However, another storm system is on its way towards the Northeast for the next 24 to 48 hours.
For today, we’re looking at mostly sunny skies with temps in the mid 20s. That’s still below average but at least you can rejoice in the streets with the sun shining down on you.
A deep area of Low pressure off in the Gulf of Mexico will ride up the Northeast and bring another major winter storm to the mid Atlantic. While the center of the storm will stay to the South of Western New York, it will pass close enough to where we will have some impacts.
Precipitation will began has snow early tomorrow. There will be a period of mixed precipitation through the afternoon with the potential for some freezing rain as temps will hover around freezing.
While this will cause some slippery travel, any major icing issues will remain to our south. We think with the combination of sleet and snow, that will keep down the overall ice accumulations; a couple hundredths of inch are possible.
High pressure will build back in towards the end of the week with a wind pattern shift to the south. That will usher in some very mild air. We could be in the 50s by Sunday.
