JAMESTOWN – The weather has settled down as a High pressure ridge has setup across the Northeast. However, some changes will be on the way for the weekend and next week.
Friday will be essentially a rinse and repeat of today; loads of sunshine, light winds, but with slightly warmer temperatures into the mid 30s, which is closer to average for this time of the year.
A disturbance will sneak by Saturday and throw some light snow across the region. Accumulations will be minimal is anything. Nothing of a big deal there. The bigger story will be Sunday through Monday.
Models have been showing another storm system moving through the mid Atlantic Sunday through Monday that will likely have some kind of impacts to Western New York. We are still a little too far out get an exact pinpoint of the storm’s potential track and it’s impacts but we do think another accumulating snow event is likely.
We can’t throw out exact total at this point but some computer models such as the favored European Ensembles, have been aggressive with snow totals while others have been leaning a bit on the conservative side. We such have a better understanding of the event tomorrow.
Beyond that, it gets down right cold once again as deep toughing over the Midwest seats up. Highs in the teens and single digit morning lows through much of next week. Some of the longer-range model guidance is hinting that this could be Winter’s final gasp before more spring-like weather takes over mid to late March.
However, as I often say, this is VooDoo Country and anything can and likely will happen between now and then.
