Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, February 1, 2021:
Snow showers from low pressure over the Ohio Valley will taper off this morning as a coastal low develops near New Jersey. This low should spread snow back into the area later today.
Snow accumulations this morning should be minimal, with most places not seeing over an inch of accumulation.
The snow will gradually become more intermittent this morning and will probably end altogether for a time. This is most likely from the late morning through the mid-afternoon hours, at least.
Eventually, snow will move in from the southeast as the low spins off the coast of New Jersey. The best chance for snow will come after sunset, with a few periods of heavier snow after midnight.
Accumulations by dawn Tuesday should be 3-6 inches with more to come during the day Tuesday.
