October Snow Forecasted This Year for New York State
We're officially in the last week of July, which is normally the hottest time of the year for those in the northeast.
That is certainly lining up with the weather that those in New York state are getting this week. Temperatures in the high 80's and low 90's are being felt today and through the remainder of the week for cities like New York City, Syracuse and Buffalo. That will also bring the risk of major thunderstorms, which have the chance to bring damaging winds, heavy downpours and even hail.
Colder weather is the last thing on the minds of those experiencing this heatwave, but it's not too early to take a gander at what the fall could bring for those in New York.
The 2023 fall forecast is up from AccuWeather and the good news initially is that New York and other parts of the northeast will likely see very hot temperatures in late August and early September; even some 90-degree readings.
Early September is not the official start of fall but Labor Day Weekend is typically when the end of summer is for most people.
However, the forecasters at AccuWeather say that flurries in higher elevations could happen in late September or early October, with those snow showers maybe taking place in lower elevations by later in October.
The October snow this year could be about two weeks ahead of schedule, compared to the average first snowfall in New York.
Widespread, accumulating snow will be the story for November and December, which hopefully isn't anywhere near as bad as it was for those off Lake Erie and Lake Ontario in 2022.
