After last week’s historic lake-effect snow event, the Northeast spot has seen a break from overly active weather. This can pose a problem, especially now that snow is freezing and compacting in western New York and northern Ohio. Makes it harder for the ground to absorb incoming moisture. Shovel out storm drains if possible in advance of a potential flood.
Showers are expected in upstate New York late Thursday night through Friday morning as the low pressure system moves into the frontal boundary between the upper atmosphere and the surface. The good thing is that this system is moving rapidly. Rain will make its way through New England and will be seen moving offshore by Friday afternoon.
In terms of rainfall, less than 1 inch is expected. The same goes for the lake-effect snow that sparks behind this storm system.
Temperatures will cool down, only hitting the 40s during the day on Friday and Saturday, and it definitely feels like late autumn in the Northeast.
