Sunday provides a change in the weather pattern for New York state, especially if you live off Lake Erie or Lake Ontario. The temperatures in the 40's likely won't be around for a while.

The highs won't escape the mid-30's and snow will blanket regions into Monday, especially for those who live in the southern portion of New York state.

However, Sunday and Monday is the lighter system of the two that is coming this week for New York. There's a system on Wednesday and into Thursday that will bring even more snow to many regions across the state.

Meteorologists are watching weather models that show a wide-impact of rather significant snowfall on Wednesday and extending into Thursday.

The Euro model on Saturday was showing anywhere from 5-11 inches of snow for the vast majority of New York state.

Sunday's real-time model shows slightly less totals but as you can see, this system covers the entire State of New York.

There's also the threat of lake effect snow after the system moves through, as mentioned by WIVB.

Right now, it appears Wednesday afternoon and evening is the time to watch for. Travel could be more difficult, with worsening road conditions. This is not a system that will bring horrible conditions, but enough snow where some plan-altering could be in store.

Highs are expected to be in the 20's next week for some spots in New York, including Western New York.

The first three weeks of January were relatively easy and it looks like Old Man Winter is finally bringing that cold and snow we have been dreading.
