February 17 weather forecast: Lull between storms

Local News

(Wednesday, February 17th, 2021) The weather is quiet for the middle of the week, but not for long. Our next storm system will bring widespread snow Thursday evening and night, making the Friday morning commute a slow one.  

The weather will be quiet and cold Wednesday. It’s the lull in between storm systems.  

Our next storm is gearing up near the Appalachians and heading for the East Coast come Thursday into Friday. This storm will likely provide widespread accumulating snow.  

The highest totals will be in the northeast tier of Pennsylvania and the steadiest, heaviest snow will fall overnight Thursday into early Friday.

It looks like snow totals with this system, which quickly exits Friday morning, will average 4-8” with a little more possible southeast of Binghamton.  

Some lake effect will develop southeast of Lake Ontario behind this storm system.

High pressure will shut this down on Sunday. It’ll also bring a brighter sky.
