Your Cortland County weather forecast for Saturday, March 6, 2021:
A mid-winter like day is ahead with bouts of lake effect snow, blustery winds, and cool temperatures.
Lake effect snow developed last night and will continue through the daytime and evening hours today.
The snow will fluctuate in intensity and may stop for brief intervals. For the most part though, steady light snow will fall.
In addition to what fell overnight, expect daytime accumulations of an inch or two, with another one to three coming this evening. Locally higher amounts are always a possibility with lake effect.
Northwest winds will blow steadily at near or just above 10 mph. Peak gusts will come in around 30 mph. Blowing and drifting of the snow can be expected in the usual areas.
Temperatures will struggle into the low 20s this afternoon, though a few hilltops may not even reach 20. Teens are likely this evening and overnight, but the lake effect cloud cover will prevent it from getting any colder.
Here is a look at the weather for the next several days:
Sunday: A few early clouds and maybe a flurry, then mostly sunny. Morning lows in the low 10s. Afternoon highs in the mid 20s.
