Super Bowl Sunday is going to be a little snowy.
Local forecasters and the National Weather Service agree that as two systems work together around the Finger Lakes to bring snow. However, it won’t be a situation where the region will be buried in fresh snow.
FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil explains:
The set up for Sunday is rather complex as one system swings through the Great Lakes and another develops along the coast. The snow may fall at a moderate rate at times, yet accumulations will be kept in check by a number of factors.
Those east of the Finger Lakes will likely see bigger accumulations — but those staying put in the region on Sunday should only see 1 to 3 inches throughout most of the area.

It may even briefly become mild enough on Sunday for some light rain showers to mix with wet snow. Minimal accumulation near #ROC. A coating to 1" of snow for most areas with up to 2" west toward #BUF. It will be windy with some gusts oer 30mph. pic.twitter.com/SrjFtL0AlD
