What to expect rest of this week

Big changes ahead over the next couple of days

SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) - What you can expect:

Thursday night:

Most of CNY will only see a coating to at most 2 inches thanks to Lake Erie. With the band on the move south temporarily tonight, northern Oswego County could see 3-6" of snowfall by morning.

Across southeastern Jefferson (southeast of Watertown) and northern Lewis counties, heavier snow will fall, especially over the northern Tug Hill. An additional 6-12" could fall tonight through early Friday morning in these locations.

There will likely be some spots over the northern Tug Hill that end up with close to two feet of new snow by Friday morning.

Travel will be difficult where the lake snow is expected to be most persistent and heaviest east and northeast of Lake Ontario between about Watertown and Sandy Creek, especially east of I-81. Roads will likely be snow covered and slick with very low visibility at times too.  



On Friday, any lake snow will wind down well north of Syracuse up around Watertown as conditions become less favorable for the lake snow during the morning hours. Yes, Friday will be cold and brisk, but much of the day is looking dry for most.

The winter chill will stick around for the foreseeable future with more opportunities for snow, especially next week.
