Blustery and chilly in cyclonic flow with scattered lake enhanced rain/snow showers

Today’s Weather Synopsis…

An unsettled weather pattern will continue today with a persistent cyclonic flow bringing scattered lake enhanced rain showers and a mix of rain and snow showers in cooler higher terrain locations. Some snow accumulations are possible in western lake favored areas into the weekend, while the rest of the region will remain mainly dry and breezy in a chilly northwesterly flow with a few isolated showers possible.

High pressure will build in on Sunday with dry and seasonable conditions returning for all areas, before another system approaches by Sunday night with some light snow or a mix of rain and snow possible into early Monday. There remains plenty of uncertainty beyond the weekend as a complex weather pattern evolves into Tuesday with the possibility of some light snow impacting the region.
