If you have spent some time outside over the past few days, then you have probably noticed that it's been a little cooler than you would expect for the month of August.

The high temperature didn't escape the 60's for many parts of New York State on Friday, while Saturday saw highs in the low 70's, with sunny skies.

There will be cooler than average weather next weekend as well, as we head closer to September and the fall season. Summer is winding down on a cooler note, which some people love and some people hate.

What is on the horizon for fall in 2023? Better yet, what about the winter?

You may have seen early winter projections a couple of weeks ago, regarding what could very well be another brutal winter for those around the Great Lakes and northeast, including here in New York.

Direct Weather went a little further in the winter projections and is currently projecting the chance of multiple snowstorms this winter season in New York.

That's with below average temperatures for New York, which would be very much unwelcomed. "Extremely cold and brutal winter for the Great Lakes," which includes Western and Central New York, which were hit hard by two generations snowstorms in November and December of 2022.

"Huge snowstorms" is the projection for New York this winter.

The good news is that we have another four months before the official start of winter, but usually November is when things start to turn for the worse in terms of cold temperatures and snow. That's how it was in 2022 and lake effect snowstorms are more prevalent from November to January, when the lakes are warmer.
