A winter storm is expected to pass through the area this Saturday. Snow is predicted to begin in the early hours of the morning and continue on in the early afternoon hours, according to The National Weather Service.
“At this point, we aren’t certain how much we are looking at,” said Charles Ross with The National Weather Service. “It’s currently looking like 3 to 7 inches. If you head to the north or towards that area — towards New York State it’s looking like a bigger storm.”
This is subject to change, depending on the track of the storm, which is still to be determined, according to the National Weather Service.
“On Saturday, there will be a high probably in the low 30s and into the 20s by the evening. Temperature won’t move a lot on Saturday.
“It gets pretty chilly Saturday night, with dusty winds and a low wind chill. Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be pretty chilly,” Ross said.
The impending snow storm could affect traveling conditions, especially towards the northern side of the state, according to the National Weather Service.
“Prepare for some winter weather conditions on Saturday; even though it might not be the biggest snow storm, it’s going to snow for a couple hours,” Ross added.
After this weekend, temperatures are expected to rise to the 50s for the remainder of next week. The record-breaking weather of 75 last Sunday is not expected to return in the near future.
“…It was a little warm this early — a little premature. It was a warm air mass that came up,” Ross said. “We are not supposed to get that warm this early; that was abnormal.”
According to the National Weather Service website, there will be a high of 35 on Sunday, a high of 51 on Monday and a high of 53 on Tuesday.
