Most of the rain Saturday will be south of our region, leaving us with intermittent showers or some drizzle and we we may well not see much rain at all

Rain will pick up Saturday night and Sunday.  However, as the high pressure moves to the northeast of us we will be setting up a cold-air damming (CAD) situation and the northeast corner of the coverage area will have freezing rain later Saturday night into Sunday.

Then as the entire column of the atmosphere cools, rain or a wintry mix will turn to snow Sunday afternoon and Sunday night and almost all models now show some accumulation, mainly inside the area bordered by I-80 and I-81.  But now there is the potential for some accumulation for the entire area.   Snow showers linger into Monday morning, then sun returns in the afternoon.

Tuesday and Wednesday feature sunny to partly cloudy skies.  Then perhaps some rain on Thursday.
