Snow/rain ending this afternoon

  • Anything out there this early afternoon ends in the next hour or two.

Weekend update

  • Saturday looks good, even a decent amount of sunshine.
  • Sunday is dry to start, but rain returns in the evening. It also gets breezy on Sunday.

Snow chances next week

  • While a few raindrops can’t be ruled out early Monday, the precipitation should transition to snow as the cold moves in through the day.
  • Lake effect snow sets up during the day Monday and into parts of the evening as well.
  • Later Tuesday into Wednesday, another disturbance brings us a few more snow showers. Some accumulation with this is looking likely, but nothing extravagant.
