A deep area of low pressure will track just to the West of our region Thursday night. Initially this system will bring a period of showers and strong wind gusts with a strong cold front. As colder air surges East on Friday morning, lake snow showers will begin to develop across the region. The parent low may slow down over Eastern New York Friday night and Saturday. IF this were to occur, a moist cyclonic flow could bring the first significant snowfall to Western New York.
We don't know how much snow will fall at this point but plow-able amounts are possible over most of the region with higher amounts in the elevations and normal lake effect areas Northeast of Rochester where over a foot of snow is easily possible. Again this depends greatly on the track and speed of this system so stay tuned and KEEP BLOGGING!
