Stormteam Forecast

Tuesday will be a much cooler day over the Southern Tier. Instead of 60s we will deal with more seasonable 40s. Most of the day will be precipitation free with just a few scattered afternoon rain or snow showers. An accumulating snow looks likely for Wednesday and Wednesday night.

Here are the weather headlines:

• Cooler weather over the Midwest is moving to the east and will settle in over the Southern Tier for midweek.
• We are now watching out for a storm riding up the eastern seaboard Wednesday/Wednesday night. Binghamton will have an accumulating snow from this storm
• Some steady snow is likely by late morning Wednesday continuing into Wednesday night.
• Heaviest snow will be from the Poconos northeast into the Catskills.
• Any snow from our coastal storm is done by Thanksgiving morning.
• Blustery and cold for Black Friday shoppers on Friday.

A cold front, the leading edge of much colder weather over the Midwest has now moved east of New York state. The air mass coming our way from the Midwest is pretty chilly. Minneapolis Minnesota had temperatures in the teens Monday with gusty northwest winds. The coldest of that air should not make it into the eastern Great Lakes though as it appears to be spreading farther north across southern Ontario and southern Quebec.

Nevertheless, our weather will be cooling off. We will be down into the 40s on Tuesday and down even more, into the 30s for the last half of the week; cold enough for snow with a new storm tracking up the East Coast on Wednesday.

Mid-Week Storm Travel Impact:

Tuesday night, a storm system is forecast to develop near the Carolina coast. Wednesday, the storm will track northeast along the U.S. coast then east of Cape Cod Wednesday night. That path will spread snow northward across inland areas of the mid-Atlantic through eastern Pennsylvania, and then northeast through eastern New York and New England Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night.

Our new data from last night continues to point to the Southern Tier and Northeast Pennsylvania being on track for a significant accumulation of snow. Areas east of Binghamton, especially, run the risk of 6” or more of snow.

Meanwhile, heavy snow is indicated from the Catskills northeast across the Hudson Valley into western New England. As usual, the exact track of the storm and its strength will play a critical role in where the heaviest snow will fall. For example, some of the computer forecast models are indicating a slightly more eastward track. That could lay some heavy snow down closer to the Interstate 95 corridor. If you plan to travel to the east, keep an eye on the forecast.
