Thursday (12/29) Morning Weather Briefing

GOOD MORNING TO YA….

Last night’s snow, as expected, was pretty “ho hum” with just some dustings for most locations. That precipitation has pushed east this morning:

Now we await the lake-effect to set up. It will take a while. The arctic air has not arrived yet:

Lake-Effect Snow Advisory is up for Mercer County, where the highest amounts could be up around 6″ or so (northern part of county).

No matter how much snow you see Friday, everyone will share in the wind and cold. Brrrrr.

THE WEEKEND (HAPPY NEW YEAR!)

Another quick-hitting system will track our way Saturday and the result could be similar to what we just saw last night: a low-impact wet snow/mix event. Think that things will just be damp on the roads for your New Year’s Eve plans. Temperatures in the 30s.

NEXT WEEK: UP THEN DOWN

An early week warm spell (mid/upper 50s Tuesday!) will be followed by a much colder pattern for the 2nd half of next week and next weekend.

The cold will actually encompass nearly the entire Lower 48. Only south Florida escapes!
