An area of low pressure will pass through the area today keeping the weather a bit unsettled.

Rain will be most likely through the morning hours. Widespread showers will taper off during the late morning and midday. The rain will not be heavy, with just a couple tenths of an inch of rainfall.

The afternoon will then be mostly cloudy with a few occasional drips and drops. A few brief glimpses of the sun may also be possible this afternoon. 

Winds will be from the south and southwest this morning at around 10 mph. During the afternoon, the wind will turn to the northwest and increase closer to 15 mph. Gusts this afternoon will reach around 30 mph.

Temperatures will make it into the low and mid 40s during the early afternoon. As the winds turn and increase, the temperature will probably retreat a couple of degrees.

This evening, a band of lake effect will develop southeast of Lake Ontario. This will start as a rain-snow mix, but will turn to all snow. 

Temperatures will remain in the mid 30s, so most roads should remain clear of snow. However, grassy surfaces could see up to an inch of accumulation in some areas.

The lake effect should shift north and dissipate before sunrise, with temperatures bottoming out in the low 30s.

Here is a look at the weather for the next few days:

Saturday: Sunny. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs in the upper 40s.

Sunday: Rain likely, along with some blustery winds. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.

Monday: Scattered rain showers, perhaps with a few early snowflakes mixing in. Morning lows in the mid 30s. Afternoon highs in the upper 30s.

Tuesday: Clouds and some sun. Morning lows in the upper 20s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.
