Weather forecast: Rain and snow this afternoon

With a Thursday full of sunshine, you probably figured snow was on the way, right? That’s been the way much of our Winter has operated.

Our next system targets the area by later this afternoon. Low pressure in the upper Great Lakes with a good deal of “spin” and upper level support will track directly across Western New York. Its mission: to be the “shot in the arm” for a storm marking some time and developing along the coast. As the upper level Low tracks across our area, we’ll see snow blossoming in addition to a little light rain along the Lake Ontario shoreline. The end result will be a somewhat messy afternoon drive.
