  • Tracking snow for Tuesday	 	 	 			After a sunny Sunday we turn cloudy Monday afternoon and get snow on Tuesday

A weather service statement Wednesday showed there was still significant snow pack across many areas of Western New York, including almost 2 feet near Springville.

Temperatures were expected to climb to the 20s Saturday and not leap above the freezing mark of 32 degrees until Monday. It will catch up to, and overtake, the precip changing rain to freezing rain/sleet and snow as colder air undercuts the warmer air mass. Chance of precipitation is 80%, but little or no snow or ice accumulation is expected.

"What I'm looking at here is the National Weather Service's lakes and rivers page", said Eric Day, with Clinton County Emergency Services, as he pointed at his iPad.

Friday, widespread, steady rain takes over as temperatures gradually fall from the 50s and 40s into this afternoon with a south wind gusting up to 30 miles per hour.

Though the snow is predicted to stop Thursday night, the National Weather Service says winds are predicted to stay around 15 to 20 miles per hour until midnight, then drop to five to 10 miles per hour.

No major crashes were reported as of about 12:30 p.m. Saturday, he said.

Expect rain - heavy at times - to continue through Friday night and past midnight.

Rain combining with melting snowpack may generate "urban and isolated" flooding, and the weather agency on Friday issued a flood watch for all of MA and all of Southern New England that remains in effect until Saturday afternoon.

The low tonight is expected to be about 10, with wind chill values reaching zero in some areas. Snow was then forecast to begin around 2 a.m. Friday with a 90 percent chance of precipitation. All rain should be expected through late Friday night and may lead to some flooding concerns in areas where drains are covered by snow.

No major weather-related accidents were reported in Lexington overnight Saturday while road crews were out in full force force treating roads.

Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 16. Rainfall will be showery and not all that heavy until the evening.

M.L. King Day: Mostly sunny, with a high near 45.
