Sunday morning the transition process from rain to bands of lake effect snow happens.
We’ve been talking about it for several days now: the arrival of a stronger fall storm system.
Saturday night will be quite wet across Maine.
Saturday: Rain likely, chance for thunderstorms. Saturday high temperatures will be around 61 degrees, yet temperatures will fall quickly as the cold front moves through Kentucky late in the day.
Steadier precipitation will taper to on and off rain Saturday night as warmer air surges into Central New York.
We are still hanging on to the breeze as we close out the work week, but the sunshine also stays with us.
As the storm moves out of the area, gusty winds of 30 to 40 miles per hour are expected. Colder temperatures arrive by Sunday and early next week, with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s. We will only have a high of 42 degrees with breezy winds out of the northwest at 10 to 15 miles per hour.
Another round of fog this morning will lead to a slow commute, so use caution on the roads and your low beam headlights. Temperature falling to zero this afternoon. Thursday and Friday see a bit of a break from new lows crashing into the coast, but moisture will still be making its way inland, generating some snow and rain across parts of Utah, Idaho, Montana, and Colorado. Accumulating snow will be possible to wrap up the weekend. Coming off a frosty-in-spots start, highs should head toward 50 or so.
Today is not the day to forget the rain gear! The center of the storm creating this mess will track along the St. Lawrence River Sunday morning & early afternoon.
However, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski noted that it’s too early to tell which local communities will get hit hardest, depending on the direction the most intense winds blow.
