Are You Kidding Me? More Snow in Central New York
Can someone turn off the snow making machinery? We've battled our way through the 'Nor'easter just in time for some Lake Effect action to bring more accumulating snow.
Most of the warnings and watches from the National Weather Service are expiring early this morning, but it doesn't mean we're done. Lake Effect snow will bring additional accumulations through the end of the day (2/3/21).
Utica Rome can expect another 2 to 4 inches, Hamilton and Oneida 4 to 6 inches, and Syracuse 4 to 8 inches.
Band of moderate to locally heavy snowfall is becoming a little less organized over the past hour or two. However, while overall intensity will be on a downturn, especially later this morning, this band of snow is likely to stay more or less over the same area through much of the day
We'll get a break from the clouds and snow on Thursday and perhaps even beat the freezing mark for temperatures. However another round of Lake Effect snow will be possible Thursday night into Friday, before temperatures take a big dive into the weekend, with highs only in the teens.
