Here comes wind, which brings cold, which brings snow…

A storm moving through the St Lawrence Rivery Valley to our west will move further north into eastern Canada. The net effect is the wind, around the storm, becomes for us, west then northwest. So the wind pickss up, to 20-40 mph by early Saturday morning, and doesnt diminish till evening. This wind brings cold, where we fall to 30F by morning, and it doesnt move another degree up all day. The wind and cold mean Lake Effect kicks in, which means snow, from roughly midnight Friday night, till later Saturday afternoon. Of course Lewis County will get the most, followed by NORTHERN Herkimer County and Hamilton County. Those regions will likely receive a half foot of snow, maybe a little more. Oneida and northern Madison will get a few inches, but the effect will really winnow down towards Ilion, towards Cooperstown, towards Morris and Oneonta. It all clears up Saturday night, and Sunday looks bright, much less windy, but cold. Monday, a very weak system will bring clouds (and milder air) back, but that should clear up for a nice Tuesday. Even if I’m wrong, nothing more than flurries would occur late Sunday night or Monday morning. Worst case.
