FLX FORECAST: Winds will gust today, rain/snow mix possible by mid-week

It’s going to be an active weather pattern this week – and after our first frost advisory of the season – there could be some flakes mixing in by weeks’ end.

That won’t be a widespread occurrence though, and will likely be in the hills and Southern Tier – where temperatures will get cooler.

As cooler air makes a return to the region – winds will pick up. By afternoon gusts over 30 mph will be possible – making it feel cooler than the high temperature reads.

There will be plenty of showers on the radar throughout the day, too. Those will pop up with greater frequency as the wind picks up, and temperatures begin to drop with the increasing wind.

Forecasters say the season’s first snowfall for some will come Wednesday Night into Thursday Morning. Temperatures will be a struggle to warm up on those days – as highs remain in the 40s.
