Good news: We’re in the double digits once again Friday. Bad news: It’s not hanging out for long and more snow is in the forecast. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 29 until 4 a.m. on Saturday.
The National Weather Service reports 2 to 4 inches of snow could fall throughout the listening area. That’ll end Saturday morning, but ABC 57 Meteorologist Tom Coomes says more lake effect snow will develop again.
From Saturday until Sunday night, expect an additional 3 to 6 inches of snow due to lake effect, with higher amounts closer to the lake as usual. The snow should be done in time for New Years Eve celebrations, but it’s going to be bitterly cold once again, with temperatures in the single digits and sub-zero wind chills.
