Milder Temps on the Horizon IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on February 14, 2017 at 09:07:02 AM by T
A cold front comes through on Wednesday with some snow showers. This colder
air will lead to lake effect snow Wednesday night into Thursday. The
band starts east of the lake then slides down near Syracuse on Thursday.
High pressure builds in on Friday with some sun. As the high pushes east
we will see milder temperatures moving our way for the weekend. We should
be well into the 40's. Through the middle of next week we will stay mild.
Even 50's are possible for Monday through Wednesday next week.
We stay near or just above average through the end of February. But I
think once we get into March we are going to have more shots of arctic
air. Of course by March when we get a cold snap it isn't usually as cold
as in January. As the southern jet stream becomes more active we will
also have to potential of some east coast snow storms. We know that we
can get some bad storms in March, like the Blizzard of '93. We will have
to wait and see how everything pans out. We are about 50 inches from our
average seasonal snowfall in Fulton. And only 20 inches away in Syracuse.
I do think that both places get to at least their averages if not a bit more
before the winter is through. Replies: There have been no replies.
