While New England prepares for an epic, possibly historic blizzard tonight into Tuesday, the predecessor to the Blizzard of 2015 will bring some light snow to the Finger Lakes region today. Already, light snow out ahead of low pressure over southern Ohio has reached the area. This snow will intensify some this morning and become steady through the afternoon hours. Most of the snow will be light, with 1-4" of accumulation by this evening. The snow will taper off tonight as low pressure develops off the Mid Atlantic coast and becomes the main storm. Mostly, this storm will be too far east to impact us, and we should have a dry period from tonight into Tuesday afternoon. South of Long Island, low pressure will stall and even track west a bit, which could bring some light snow back into our area Tuesday evening before the storm zips off to the northeast.
Behind the Blizzard, more cold air will flood into the region as an arctic high pressure builds in. This should give us some sun on Wednesday, but morning temperatures both Wednesday and Thursday will struggle to stay above 0º. With even just light winds, the wind chills will likely drop below zero both mornings. A 'clipper' system will drop southeast from Canada later Thursday into Friday. This should bring another period of light snow to the region with a couple more inches of snow. As is often the case with clipper systems, another shot of bitter cold will move in behind this for the weekend, with more morning lows near 0º and highs in the teens at best.
