The weather so far this season has been relatively mild, but that is expected to change a bit this weekend in Central New York. The National Weather Service is predicting cold temperatures and some moderate snow accumulation starting this weekend in Upstate New York.

High Temperatures in the low 30s and overnight lows in the low 20s seems to be the norm beginning this weekend and moving forward.

Sunshine and temperatures in the upper 30s are expected on Saturday. But, "Periods of snow. High 34F. Winds ESE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 90%. 1 to 3 inches of snow expected," is the forecast for Sunday. An additional inch of snow could fall on Sunday night into Monday morning.

This week's weather looks to be cooler, yet there's very little snow in the forecast until later in the week.
