Sunny Days Are Here Again...

<B>(Wednesday Midday December 12, 2012)</B>It will be a mainly sunny and breezy afternoon here in central New York. A few snow showers will begin to impact the counties east of Lake Ontario this evening with a light accumulation possible over the Tug Hill.
High pressure extends this midday from the New England/Canadian boarder southwest through to the lower Mississippi Valley region.  Over the next few days, high pressure is forecast to remain firm and strong as it is forecast to move very little through the end of the work week.

The only real threat for any rain or snow through Saturday looks to be later today and tonight as some limited lake effect snow showers will impact areas well north of the Thruway.  The air through tonight is expected to remain marginally cold enough to produce lake effect clouds and snow showers.  Winds will be from the west and southwest through tonight, consequently, any snow showers that do form will impact areas well north of the Thruway.  It’s possible some areas over the Tug Hill region receive a light accumulation tonight.
 
Along with the inordinate amount of sunshine we’ll have into Saturday, daytime high temperatures will be averaging nearly 10 degrees above normal. 

The likely next significant weather system that will impact the region is forecast to head east toward us for Sunday and Monday.  The models are coming into better agreement that low pressure will initially track northeast into the Great Lakes Sunday before a secondary area of low pressure forms off the New England coast on Monday.  Temperatures will be borderline for wintry precipitation during this time. We’ll keep you posted.
