West to east upper air flow
persists through the afternoon as a trough of low pressure moves into
the area. A clipper system has greatly developed and has been able to
gain access to moisture from the Gulf of Mexico to produce significant
precipitation in some locations. Today we should expect mostly cloudy
sky conditions as precipitation moves in as the evening arrives. This
will start off as a mostly snow event, but as the warm front moves past
we will see warming during the overnight. This is where we will see our
greatest chance of mixed precipitation such as freezing rain, snow,
sleet and rain. 1-3" of snow is forecast before turning over to mostly
rain. Temperatures will reach a high in the mid 20s during the
afternoon but will be rising during the overnight.
As the low moves to the northwest, and out of the area, an upper air
trough will move in, giving us colder temperatures and continuing snow
Wednesday evening. Precipitation is forecast to end late Wednesday
night into Thursday morning. For Wednesday afternoon, temperatures will
reach the high 30's or possibly lower 40's depending on cloud cover.
However, once the cold front moves through, temperatures will drop into
the mid teens.
As the weekend nears, we will see high temperatures in the mid to upper
20's. However, spring is approaching as we will see temperatures in the
mid to upper 30's during the weekend into next week.
This is Chris Morrill, stay classy Oneonta.
