It is April Fools Day, so have some good natured fun with it.
Regarding the weather, I thought I'd better post as some folks are getting carried away in screaming "Snow" for this weekend. Yes, for a narrow path primarily from Erie/Buffalo east to Binghamton/Albany to Nashua/Providence will have accumulating snow. There will be some north of that area, but not a lot, and there will be some light snows to the south giving the mountains a coating. But for our area? Not seeing much of anything. Too warm to start. Ground to warm. Not enough moisture as it gets cut off prior to air getting cold enough for snow.
What is causing this? Well, that secondary strong cold front on Sat is going to have a wave of low pressure on it. This wave will strengthen rapidly, dropping temps quickly, with a several hour burst of snow on the backside of low. It will be like a fist of fury: Small, compact, but intense in narrow areas. It will also produce some strong gusty winds overnight Sat into Sun. This will dump anywhere from 3-5" of snow from Erie/Buffalo east to Binghamton/Albany to Nashua/Providence. You may find some snow flakes in the air here, but nothing to worry about.
Also, this is the last potential shot for snow flakes in the air for us, that I see. Yes, we are done with snow. That is my opinion and I've said before and am sticking with it.
Looking for a big rain storm next Thu/Fri time period. But we have lots of time to iron out the details. The rest of forecast looks good at this time. See previous post below. Full update tomorrow early.
