Our first order of business is tackling Tuesday’s snow. An area of low pressure to our south will slide eastward. This will allow a general, widespread swath of snow to spread across the area through the morning. Light to at times moderate snow will fall through the morning and into the early afternoon before tapering from west to east. The northward push of moisture in the overnight has resulted in a slight increase in our projected snowfall tallies, but not by much. In general, we expect 1 to 3 inches of snow to fall north of the Thruway with 3 to 5 inches falling to our south. Not a huge event, but whatever sticks will end up sticking around for awhile.
