NWS: Winds could gust over 50 mph, snow squalls likely today

It’s going to be a squally day in the Finger Lakes. While the region has been seeing mild temperatures, with daily highs in the 40s- that is going to change today, as an Arctic front brings colder temps, howling winds, and snow.

The National Weather Service says that wind gusts between 45 and 50 mph are likely, with some gusts into the 50s.

The snow squalls are expected to time out between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m, which means the afternoon commute could be a challenge.

There won’t be a ton of accumulation, but visibility will quickly drop in these bands of snow.

Due to those gusty conditions the entire region is in a Wind Advisory for the day. High-profile vehicles will be most likely to be impacted by it on the roads.

We’ll update this story throughout the day. Send photos of weather in your neighborhood to news@fingerlakes1.com.
