Snow, wind will remain locked in the FLX through day (full coverage)

Wednesday will be a snowy, cold, blustery day making it feel like mid-winter, despite spring being a short time away. Check out the latest forecast information below as winter continues to thrash the Finger Lakes.


– Areas of lake effect snow will continue throughout the day, according to FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil. Some squalls, which will dump moderate amounts of snow will be spread throughout the afternoon and evening as well.

– The snow will be heaviest in the Eastern Finger Lakes, over the hills of Cayuga and Owasco lakes. While the rest of the region should see anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow, these areas will likely end up with more than a foot of fresh snow.

– Strong winds will develop during the afternoon hours, which will bring blowing and drifting snow into the equation. Gusts could be in the 30 to 40 mph range, with higher gusts possible in those ‘higher’ terrains and hilltops.

– By evening, the snow will begin pulling out of the region, as the system responsible for creating the lake effect snow gets pushed away. By midnight it should be completely over for most of the Finger Lakes.

– Thursday will remain windy, and cold despite some sun popping out, according to Montreuil, who says that the cool, breezy pattern will continue. By the weekend, the weather should improve to a point where temperatures will moderate.
