FLX Winter Storm Information

Evening Storm Update From FL1 Meteorologist Drew Montreuil: As I mentioned in the video below, updated from the mid-afternoon hours, the snow has somewhat let up across the Finger Lakes, with just a few pockets of heavier snow. As I also mentioned, it won’t last. Snow is moving back into Central New York from the northeast as a pocket of atmospheric energy spins around the parent low. As this energy moves westward, so, too will the snow that is located to its north and west. This snow will be steady and moderate to heavy in intensity. I do not think it will be quite as heavy as some of what we saw today, but, generally speaking, another 3 to 6" is likely tonight across the Finger Lakes. Areas south of Lake Ontario (Rochester, Wayne county, etc.) and the higher elevations may see even more. Dry air will come in behind this batch of snow, tapering the precipitation to just flurries as soon as a couple hours after midnight for some areas, mostly along and east of I-81. For much of the Finger Lakes, however, the snow will not end until the early or even mid-morning hours. This means another sloppy commute, so please plan for extra travel time tomorrow morning and take it slow. By the mid to late morning hours on Thursday, the majority of this storm should finally be done, with scattered snow showers and light to no additional accumulations expected.
