ROCHESTER, N.Y. – We’ll remain cool, brisk and unsettled on Wednesday and Thursday, as the impressive upper level low and surface low continue to sit and spin over the central Great Lakes. This will continue to keep lake effect in the forecast through Thursday, but mostly in the form of rain. Slight wind shifts will help to move the Lake Erie band north and south, and break it up occasionally over the  next 48 hours. As expected, the highest terrain of the western Southern Tier has seen some minor wet snow on the ground on Tuesday, and should continue. The best shot of seeing any white on the ground will be in the hills of the Finger Lakes and the western Southern Tier, ski country south of Buffalo. Most everybody else will just deal with a cool and wind-driven rain, maybe some graupel.

Drier weather returns on Friday with more sunshine and temperatures back up to near 60, and we’ll keep that going into the weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday look spectacular, with sunshine and highs near 70. Mild air will likely continue into the first half of next week, before our next chance of some rain and more seasonable air by the middle to end of next week.
