Rounds Of Light Snow

Continue In Mid-Week

If Otsego County winter lovers have been disappointed by a generally mild January thus far, a return to wintry conditions has commenced and will continue into midweek.

Areas of snow and flurries that persisted from Sunday night to Monday morning were part of the old storm that affected the region over the weekend.

At the start of this past weekend, a large storm system pushed across the Great Lakes and into the Northeast and spread an expansive swath of snow. Accumulating snow from this storm also blanketed portions of the Ohio and Tennessee valleys. About 1-2 feet of snow piled up over the Adirondack, Green and White mountains of the interior Northeast.

A change in the weather pattern later this week could set the stage for more snow across the East Coast for the month of January, with some help from a familiar winter friend – the polar vortex.

Temperatures will start tumbling in the Northern Plains and Midwest on Thursday, and the cooler air will likely reach places like the Ohio Valley on Thursday night and Friday. The cold is due to reach Upstate New York, New England, the East Coast and even down into the southern Appalachians by late Friday or Saturday.

Drenching rain, gusty winds, thunderstorms and even floods are possibly across Upstate New York on Christmas Eve and Christmas, Accuweather is warning.

“A potent storm will slowly move across much of the eastern U.S. Christmas Eve during the day and on Christmas itself,” explained AccuWeather Meteorologist Jessica Storm.

“Ahead of the storm, milder air and a lot of moisture will surge northward along gusty winds. The storm will tap into all this moisture to spread drenching rain across a large swath of the East,” she said.
