The cold air moving over the Great Lakes, including Lake Ontario has resulted in lake effect snow. However, the strong April sun is negatively affecting the organization and intensity of the snow showers. We’ll likely only see light snow and flurries through the day with little accumulation.
Outside of lake effect snow, windy and unseasonably cold temperatures will be the rule as high temperatures will be some 10-15 degrees below normal. Wind chill temperatures will be in the teens and 20s thanks to gusts upwards of 30mph at times.
Once the sun sets this evening, there are some indications that lake effect snow may try and re-organize. Were this to occur, then localized additional accumulations of 2-4” are possible. Once snow showers end Wednesday we should see some sun develop during the afternoon. Later in the week, high pressure will build into the region as milder air arrives, thus we expect high temperatures to reach close to 50 degrees Thursday and Friday…and even the weekend, though rain showers will be possible by Sunday.
