Bit of snow on Saturday leads to minor accumulations


Scattered flurries will be possible throughout the day, but no accumulation is expected.

Our cold weather that we've had the last few days is about to get colder. As the colder air overruns some of the warmer air that we've seen at the end of the week, a freezing rain/snow potential will develop.

"Saturday should moderate a bit with high about 25 degrees", Rubin said. Tim says if there is any water on the roads during this first week of the New Year, there would be danger of ice, but he is not expecting any precipitation.

With the temperatures already in the teens, the threat of frostbite is highly likely for anyone spending a lengthy amount of time outdoors for the holiday. The mercury will plunge to near zero Monday night.

Temperatures Sunday afternoon will only reach the mid to upper 20s.

Still, the New Year's Eve chill isn't expected to sniff the record low of minus-4 degrees felt in Times Square in 1918, according to AccuWeather.

In fact, you may want to reconsider partying outside this New Year's Eve, given the biting cold and chance for snow in the forecast.

The coldest air of the winter will move into the state starting on Sunday night. Highs will be in the upper single digits up north to the mid teens in southern NH by mid afternoon. The day will start with temperatures in the 40s and will eventually fall into the 30s by evening.

Wind Chill Advisories will be in effect for all of Western New York beginning at 1 a.m. Sunday and lasting through 10 a.m. Monday. Temperatures this cold will be enough to see pipes freeze and burst if they are not insulated or protected from the cold.
