After a rainy night, a cold front this morning will turn precipitation over to snow.

The front should move through the area sometime around or after 8 AM. By this time, precipitation should be tapering off anyway, so the window for some steadier snow is small.

Still, a few roads may get a bit slick during the mid and late morning hours and some areas may see a coating of snow before the precipitation tapers off.

Throughout the midday and afternoon hours, it will be cloudy with occasional snow showers. These should bring up to an inch of accumulation.

It will be a bit on the breezy side with northwest winds of 10-15 mph and a few gusts over 25 mph.

Temperatures will be at their warmest early this morning and will fall into the mid 30s with the front. A slower, but steady drop in temperature will take place the rest of the day, with low 30s in the midday and early afternoon, and upper 20s late in the afternoon.

Snow enhanced by Lake Ontario will push inland during the evening, leading to periods of steady, mainly light snow through the nighttime hours. An inch or two of accumulation will be possible.

Temperatures will continue to drop, ending up in the upper 10s by Saturday morning. Winds will remain steady, so some areas of blowing snow will be possible.

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

Saturday: Scattered snow showers early. Some late sun. Morning lows in the upper 10s. Afternoon highs in the mid 20s.

Sunday: Mostly sunny. Morning lows in the mid 10s. Afternoon highs in the low 30s.

Monday: Sunshine mixing with a few clouds. Morning lows in the upper 10s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.

Tuesday: Cloudy with rain showers, possibly mixing with a little ice early. Morning lows in the upper 20s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.
