(Thursday, January 6, 2022) A coastal storm will graze the area with some snow Thursday night into Friday.

Some light snow is expected along with more cold air. 

Thursday is a typical January day in the Southern Tier.

It’s cloudy, chilly, and a little breezy.

The lake effect snow is not impacting the area.

The wind direction is just not in our favor Thursday. 

The potential Nor’easter we’ve been keeping an eye on all week will graze the Southern Tier with some light snow late Thursday night into Friday morning.

A coating up to 2 or 3 inches can be expected. 

Later in the day Friday lake effect off of Lake Ontario could reach as far south as the Binghamton area.

Some of these lake effect snow showers could have some embedded snow squalls, so watch for quick changeable conditions as you’re out and about Friday. 

The weekend starts out quiet. A new system will swing by Sunday with a rain and snow mix.

Another blast of cold, arctic air, colder than earlier this week, returns next week.
