For most of the region the snow from the most-recent winter storm has subsided or stopped altogether. Many places in the Finger Lakes saw 4-8 inches of total accumulation. It wasn’t a blockbuster winter weather event- but the blowing and drifting lake enhanced snow definitely created some challenges.
Here’s a look at the remaining concerns will be for those hitting the road on the final day of this weekend:
– Lake effect snow will continue for some into the late-morning hours. Don’t expect any crazy, additional accumulations. The Storm Trackers Team and National Weather Service both agree that by late-morning conditions will have significantly improved.
– Secondary roads will remain sloppy as breezy, cold conditions hold tight for 24 more hours. There were a couple travel advisories issued overnight, but those have been allowed to expire. Relief is on the way, too. temperatures will soar on Monday into the 40s and 50s in most spots in the Finger Lakes.
– How quickly is the weather going to change now? Check out the FingerLakes1.com Weather Center for the latest forecast information- but high temperatures around 50 on Monday, with highs in the 40s on Tuesday and a chance for rain means that most of the snow that fell over the weekend will be gone soon. Temperatures will keep trending upward- with highs expected in the 60s by mid-week.

The Batavia @nysmesonet site is a great example of how quickly visibility can drop with strong winds and a sudden band of lake effect snow. These photos are only five minutes apart with dramatic change in visibility. Winds in the area are gusting over 40mph. #NYwx @NWSBUFFALO pic.twitter.com/QMNqTY2O9D
