The active weather pattern that the region has been locked into over the last week or two will continue into the weekend, with the threat of snow showers, squalls, up-and-down temperatures, and much more.
According to FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil the weather will get dicey again late-Friday into Saturday when winds will swing from the northwest around to the south out ahead of another system approaching the area. It shouldn’t be significantly measurable snow, but it could be enough to make travel challenging for those heading out late-Friday or early-Saturday.
Most of Saturday will be quiet, but temperatures will fall significantly during the overnight hours heading into Sunday. Montreuil says that some locations, especially those in the southern tier could bottom out at- or below-zero.
By the start of next week temperatures will moderate and climb into the 30s, which will feel like a significant warm-up from what the region has experienced over the last several days.
