Conditions Improve, Warm-Up Friday

The winter storm that slammed our region yesterday is departing off of the New England coast this morning. The vast majority of the precipitation with this system is now confined to northern New England, though a few flurries will remain possible across our area through midday.Some local enhancement of the snow showers is also likely directly south and east of Seneca and Cayuga Lake early this morning due to some lake effect snow off of each of those still unfrozen lakes.Wind speeds will continue to decrease during the day as well. The purple colors on the map over much of New York and Pennsylvania represent wind speeds of 10-20mph with higher gusts up to 30mph. These will give way to the light, near calm winds shown in grey over the Upper Great Lakes.High pressure over Illinois will also move east and center itself over our region overnight tonight. The combination of calm winds, clear skies from the high pressure, and the fresh snow pack will combine to bring us another cold night. Temperatures will range from +5º to -5º overnight before the high moves east and a slight southerly breeze stops our temperature from free falling during the early morning hours Friday.
