Weekend Cold, Wet Snow in Northern New England

While it's shaping up to be a wet and stormy end to the week in the Northeast, rain will be replaced by some snowflakes across parts of New England over the weekend.

Most areas will not get much snow but instead will have a few snow showers that will whiten lawns and leave a coating of snow on cars and decks Saturday night.

However, some of the higher elevations from northern New York to southern Maine could pick up an inch or two of wet snow.

Many people will not see any traffic delays due to the snow except for those who plan on driving through mountainous areas.

Places that have best chance of picking up a few inches of wet snow include the higher elevations, such as the Adirondacks, the Green Mountains and the White Mountains.

Syracuse and Buffalo, N.Y., and Erie and Pittsburgh, Pa., could all get a few snowflakes Saturday night, but they will likely not get any accumulation.

This snow will not last long, ending as some spotty showers Sunday.

The chance for these early November snowflakes is possible due to a dip in the jet stream, which will allow colder air to move in from Canada.

Temperatures will drop Sunday as the cold Canadian air pushes through the Northeast, dropping by more than 10 degrees from what they will be Saturday. This includes cities along the I-95 corridor.

On top of the lower temperatures, a chilly breeze from the north will make the AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperature even colder.
