Slippery Travel This Afternoon, Warming Up By Weeks End

JAMESTOWN – As we’ve been talking about all week, the storm system will brush the region through the next 24 hours, bringing Western New York some snow, rain and freezing rain.

The National Weather Service keeps the Winter Weather Advisory in place for all of Western New York until 1 AM Thursday morning. While the overall snow and sleet accumulations will be minimal, roadways will likely become slick from a period of freezing rain this afternoon.

As warmer air starts to work in from the south temps will warmup through the 30’s overnight changing all precipitation over to plain rain. A few wet snow flakes are possible early on.

High pressure builds back in for Friday with a southernly wind aloft. You know with a south wind, that will take our temps and boost them back up. We will likely be in the lower 50’s by Sunday with some rain showers.

Temps go back down into the 30’s and 20’s by early next week as we reintroduce the chance for snow showers Monday and Tuesday.
