A cold and breezy day is on tap to start the workweek with lake effect snows across western areas. A few snow showers could occasionally sneak into the Capital Region into this afternoon. High pressure will then briefly build into the region tonight with very cold temperatures as another clipper system passes south of the region. By late Tuesday into Wednesday, yet another clipper system will quickly move through with a period of light snow. Also, still monitoring the potential for a coastal storm on Friday.
