No joke! More freaking snow and cold temperatures are coming to Central New York on April Fools Day.

Screw you Old Man Winter. Your season is over and honestly, we're sick of seeing you. Especially a few weeks into what is supposed to be spring. It's time to let Mother Nature shine.

Snow & Cold

Another round of unseasonably cold air and snow showers will move across the region as we change the calendar from March to April.

Thankfully it won't be as frigid as it was on Monday, March 28 when we barely hit double digits. "The air from early this week originated from the Arctic, while the air coming in from Friday to Saturday will originate from southern Canada and the Pacific Ocean and will not be as cold, nor as harsh as a result," said AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok.

CNY Weather

In Central New York the temperatures will be almost 10 degrees below normal and wet snow is expected, especially in the higher elevations. The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook.

Gusty rain showers this afternoon gradually change over to snow into the evening. Reduced visibility is possible, and quick light snow accumulations mainly in the higher terrain may lead to slick road conditions.
