Wintry Finger Lakes: Weekend ends with accumulating snow, gusty winds

This soggy weekend the Finger Lakes is experiencing will end a wintry one, as accumulating snowfall works its way into the picture.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of the area. This includes Cayuga, Onondaga, and Cortland counties. The advisory runs until 11 a.m. Monday.

Travel could be very difficult through these areas, the National Weather Service notes. Visibility could be greatly impacted as gusty winds come along with 3-8 inches of snowfall.

Snow squalls and steady snow will last longest in these locations, but everyone will see snowy weather from late-Sunday through early-Monday.

The entire region is also in a Wind Advisory as gusty winds leave the window open for some minor damage or power outages. Winds will be sustained between 20-30 mph with gusts to 50.

The gusty winds will last longer than the precipitation though. The National Weather Service has the Wind Advisory posted for all counties until Monday at 8 p.m.

This wintry weather will be short-lived, though. While Monday will still feel like mid-winter in the Finger Lakes as the snow to an end, temperatures will push toward 50 on Tuesday, then make a run past 60 on Wednesday and Thursday, melting any snow that’s on the ground.
