CENTRAL NEW YORK (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – In the wake of the springtime snowstorm, scattered rain, and snow showers continue Tuesday night along with strong westerly winds gusting over 30 MPH. Additional power outages are possible as crews work to restore power to tens of thousands of Central New Yorkers.

Wednesday may start with flurries but skies will clear out for a sunny and dry afternoon. Temperatures will top out in the 40s with breezy westerly winds continuing. A cold night follows with temperatures dropping below freezing for a time before daybreak on Thursday.

A round of scattered showers is expected on Thursday with most places expected to receive just a half-inch or less rain. With the rapidly melting snow leading to rising rivers and creeks, we can’t handle much more.

Windy conditions continue on Friday and will help to rapidly melt the remaining snowpack. The weekend will feature a warming trend, nearing 60° on Saturday and 70° on Sunday.
