Winter Storm Watch For Parts of New York State
We're two weeks away from Christmas Eve, which means that many people are hoping for a white Christmas this year.
There are some people who are fine without a white Christmas, after the blizzard that took place last year. We haven't seen the significant snowfall events yet though, outside of a foot or more just off Lake Erie or Lake Ontario, which didn't last long, as those snows have melted with the warmer temperatures in the last several days.
However, this is the time of the year that lake effect snowstorms are most prevalent and it appears we will have more snow falling just off lake Ontario.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the eastern Lake Ontario region, Sunday night into Monday. Those towns includes Oswego, Pulaski, Adams, Watertown and Carthage.
7 inches of snow or even more is expected, as the rain moving through will switch over to snow by Sunday evening.
Snow is expected to accumulate in Central New York as well, along with the southern tier of Western New York, although there should be less in the way of accumulations. Buffalo and Rochester could see snow but nothing that will amount to much.
It should be a rather quiet weather week across the state, once we get into Tuesday. That day (Tuesday) will be dry but a bit windy, with dry conditions continuing until next weekend.
There really isn't any other significant snow forecasted for at least the next week, as we continue the rather quiet and warm December for those in New York State.
