CENTRAL NEW YORK (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – Thursday is another cold, quiet day in Central New York with a small chance for flurries. Drizzle is also possible in the afternoon as temperatures warm above freezing for a time.
Some light snow showers are possible late Thursday night/early Friday morning followed by a surge of Arctic air into NY. Temperatures start in the teens and will fall throughout the day on Friday. Gusty winds will create sub-zero wind chills by the afternoon.
Late Friday night/early Saturday morning wind chill temperatures will range from -25° to -45° across Central New York. Under these conditions, frostbite is possible in less than 30 minutes. Highs are only in the single digits on Saturday and Saturday night will be almost as cold as the previous night. Other than the brutal cold, the weekend looks quiet with plenty of sunshine on Sunday.
We are keeping a close eye on Sunday night and Monday for the potential for our next big snow event. Plan ahead and keep an eye on the evolving forecast.
