Mid-Week Winter Storm Could Bring Rapid-Accumulating Snow To CNY
What to heck? Did Mother Nature lose track of time and is now playing catch up? We might get hit with another storm on Wednesday.
Nor'easter round two is named Quinn and could add to the snow totals from the past weekend, but it's still to soon to tell according to the National Weather Service out of Binghamton. This is what they know so far: "...An area of low pressure over the Great Lakes will rotate Eastward Tue night/Wed morning with a secondary surface low forming just off the NC coast Wed morning. A pre-frontal upper trough will lift Northeastward through PA/NY Tue night and push a band of light snow across the area. The coastal low will lift to the north during the morning and early afternoon hours Wed and eventually strengthen and be situated near the DE/NJ coast in the afternoon and early evening hours. Strong forcing wrapped in a cold air mass and plenty of moisture should lead to a period of rapid- accumulating snow...especially over Pike and Sullivan counties. Areas further to the west, including the Wyoming Valley, Binghamton and other areas of the Catskills could see a period of heavy snow as well, but confidence is not as high as areas to the east, so will keep the Winter Storm Watch confined to the far eastern counties. May see snow amounts around 5 to 8 inches in the Watch area...2 to 5 inches just to the west...and less than 2 inches further west into the Finger Lakes..."
