Periods of snow during the early-morning hours will leave the Finger Lakes primed for warmer weather over the next several days.
Temperatures quickly jumped above freezing during the morning hours; and a warm front is moving north, which is bringing some snow showers along with it.
An area of snow advancing northeastward up Lake Erie at 5 a.m. will bring a fresh coating to inch of fluffy snow to western counties of WNY, including the metro #Buffalo area through 8 am. Slick spots on area roadways are possible. pic.twitter.com/QypD2OHLHl

Expect high temperatures to hang around 40 degrees, and then push into the 40s on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Along with the warmer weather – will come a fairly quiet, uneventful pattern, too.
A slight chance for a shower each day, but aside from that – quiet, comfortable (to December standards) and a great weekend to get out in the Finger Lakes.
Periods of snow today will give most of CNY and NEPA less than an inch. Where the snow lingers the longest (late afternoon) in Pike County PA and Sullivan County NY, snow amounts will be up to 2 inches. #NYWX #PAWX pic.twitter.com/dyHRFkQREH
