Today will be a breezy, cold day that will end with some lake effect snow showers.

Through the morning and first half of the afternoon, snow should be very limited through the region. Only a few stray flurries are expected.

There may even be some occasional glimpses of sunshine here and there.

It will become increasingly windy, however. Northwest winds will peak during the late morning through the mid-afternoon. Wind speeds will be slightly over 15 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph.

These winds will keep it cold, with most areas not even reaching 30 degrees this afternoon.

Lake effect snow will develop and move into the area late in the afternoon and especially into the evening hours.

As usual with lake effect, the northern areas will have the best chance for seeing accumulations, and several inches may fall in these areas. The rest of the county should see lighter amounts, with southern areas seeing little to no accumulation.

The lake effect should move northward after midnight as winds, which will be much lighter in speed, start to shift to the west and southwest.

Evening temperatures will quickly fall into the low 20s. This should be easily cold enough for non-treated roadways to become snow covered.

Overnight lows will end up around 20 degrees.

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

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. Maybe a few flurries. Morning lows near 20. Afternoon highs in the low 30s.

Thursday: Sun and clouds. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.

Friday: Cloudy with occasional rain. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.

Saturday: Sun and clouds. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs near 40.
