Latest Forecast Update from Meteorologist Steve Caporizzo:

What a change from the past three days. Now we are locked into real December weather-COLD….and a small storm for Sunday afternoon, and something else may be brewing later Thursday into Friday of Next Week.

Temps will be averaging somewhat below normal for the next week, so our mild weather is now going to be a long memory.

Latest Surface Maps

COLD High Pressure to our north will dominate through Saturday….Chilly and dry.

A small storm to our west will be blocked….The Storm in the Central Rockies heads EAST-and this is the storm to bring a light snowfall here for Sunday afternoon/night.

FUTURECAST for Sunday

A Small storm comes east from the Great Lakes-Limited moisture but a decent band of snow—arrives by early afternoon and continues through Midnight…the storm will actually weaken as it moves to the ESE……not a lot of moisture off the ocean on this one-but a light accumulation for everyone-and all snow.

OK…Lets tackle the Snow on Sunday

Here’s the timeline and the travel times/Winter weather hazards with this light snowfall.

Just be careful traveling Sunday afternoon and night.
