Our three-day total from lake effect snow is 23 inches which is quite impressive, our total for the month is 27 inches all falling last week. Now we can begin the cleanup phase and happily, we won’t see any more snow falling for the next week. Yesterday’s high was 25° the low was 18°
While skies will remain mostly cloudy with snow showers continuing, much improved conditions are expected today. Any accumulation will be on the order of an inch or less near and west of Highway 131. There will be some peaks of sunshine at times through the course of the day. Highs will top out in the upper 20s to lower 30s for the most part. West winds of 15 to 25 mph make it feel cold by November standards. Normal highs today should be in the low to mid-40s.
- Lingering light snow showers/flurries gradually ending today - KGRR radar trends and sfc obs early this morning indicate that lingering light snow showers continue to gradually diminish. Very little additional snow accumulation is expected early this morning in our favored wnw flow snow belt regions near to west of US-131. Therefore we will go ahead and cancel the winter storm warning and winter wx advisory headlines. Thanks for the coord on this decision APX/IWX. A consensus of latest higher res computer model guidance remains consistent in showing the lingering light snow showers and flurries will continue to diminish this morning. This as the upper trof axis continues to move further east and away from our region and h8 temps moderate rapidly this morning and afternoon. - Tranquil weather for most of the upcoming week - A consensus of latest medium range guidance continues to suggest tranquil wx returns for most of the upcoming week along with a gradual moderating trend of temps from early to midweek. A low pressure system moving in from the west will bring our next chance for some rain showers or mixed precipitation by Thursday through Friday. However considerable medium range guidance discrepancies still exist in terms of evolution of that system which leads to much lower fcst confidence for the late week time frame and beyond.
