The forecast will be quiet today, after an active Monday in the Finger Lakes.
That doesn’t mean there won’t be any snow showers at all. Tompkins, Cortland, and Broome counties will see snow showers this morning after some lake effect snow developed overnight. The National Weather Service says it should taper quickly this morning – leaving only an inch, or so, of new accumulation.
The same can be said for those communities along Lake Ontario in Wayne County. A quick inch of light, fluffy accumulation will be possible this morning – but it won’t be enough to challenge the commute.
Temperatures are cold, though. The day will start in the single-digits for some places – and end up in the low- to mid-20s.
Tonight lows will dip back into the mid-teens. Then, on Wednesday things will get active again.
Precipitation during the afternoon timeframe will change from snow to rain, and during that transition – could result in some light icing.
Stay tuned to the forecast and resources below to see the latest from the National Weather Service on the upcoming wintry weather.

Persistent #lakeeffectsnow showers feeding off Lake Ontario & the Finger Lakes…extending from Cortland and Ithaca to Binghamton. May see a quick 1/2 to 1 inch of fluffy snow this morning. #nywx pic.twitter.com/FtUhEOXFZR
