Weather forecast: Cold air, limited lake snows greet us Monday morning…

Think of Lake Ontario as the energizer bunny that will just keep going and going and going with lake-effect snow today and even into tomorrow. As long as we have winds coming out of the north we will see lake flakes north of the thruway and more specifically north of Ridge Road along Lake Ontario. Expect scattered snow showers to bring an inch or two locally through the afternoon that could put a quick dusting on roads, but this will be localized to lake-effect snow bands closer to the lake. 

Everyone feels the chill today with temperatures staying in the teens for the majority of the day. The north winds will keep wind chills in the single digits. There may be a bit of sun later today, but temperatures will not be impacted much as highs hit around 20° and that is running some 10° colder than average. Light snow is possible overnight into early Tuesday morning as winds continue off Lake Ontario. No additional accumulation is expected.
