Snow Possible Next Week for New York State
If you are sick and tired of the heat, then the relief is just about here for everyone in New York State.
A cold front went through the state, along with the rest of the Great Lakes and northeast late on Thursday night and into Friday morning, as temperatures dropped from the 80's to the 60's for highs.
This weekend and into next week will be even colder, as we should only see temperatures in the low-to-mid 50's both Saturday and Sunday. There's also going to be rain in great amounts the next few days, especially on Sunday.
Sunday will be very rainy because of Tropical Storm Phillipe, which will make landfall late on Saturday or early on Sunday. Maine will be where it will be the most intense, but the GFS model has that moisture swinging back up and getting into New York State; along with a rain system coming from the west.
In fact, the model suggested that temperatures could be cold enough in certain spots to drop snow and not rain in New York...
This would be Monday, although if it should happen probably won't accumulate to much.
To go from 80 degrees to snow falling in just a few days, would be quite the sight. The first average snowfall for Buffalo is October 23rd and first measurable snow for much of the state is early-to-mid November, so we're getting very close to having to be on the lookout for that first measurable snow.
Cold rain will be a storyline for the next week or two, so definitely get those rain jackets and sweaters ready.
