Up To a Foot of Snow Possible For Parts of New York State
The story on Tuesday for all of New York State has been rainfall. Light to heavy rain has fallen on Tuesday and will continue to fall, until colder air takes hold and we get back to a normal weather pattern for the month of February.
Unfortunately, that normal trend is colder and yes, snowier.
Despite enjoying 50-degree temperatures Monday and Tuesday, the colder air will bring snow for the entire State of New York by Friday.
But how much?
It really depends on where you are. Some regions in the state could see 5-7 inches of snow, while other regions could see up to a foot of snow, including the area near Albany.
AccuWeather is projecting anywhere from 6-12 inches of snow across New York, but this early forecasted snowfall indicates that greater potential snowfall totals will be in the eastern portion of the state.
The temperatures will remain cold for New York through the weekend, and into next week, with the potential for 40's by the middle of next week.
It's a shame that we're going to get all this snow on Friday because it's been so nice to get rid of that snowpack with the warming temps and rainfall. For many residents, this week was the first time they have seen their grass in a few weeks. That's how brutally cold and snowy this winter has been, especially for those who live off Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
We will see how many more snowstorms, if any, we get after this one on Friday. Is there any chance this is the last hoorah?
Probably not, but it doesn't hurt to be optimistic.
