A weakening cold front, tied to low pressure over Lake Ontario this morning, will slow to a crawl over western New York today. As result, some flurries and an abundance of cloud cover, will remain over the Capital Region through the day. Clouds will remain entrenched across the area this evening, keeping temperatures from tumbling too low.

The frontal system looks to weaken and eventually dissolve to our west on Tuesday, allowing a weak area of high pressure to build into the region from the upper Great Lakes. This fair weather maker looks to remain with the region through Wednesday.

Warmer air’s northward advance, a warm front, will approach the Capital Region Wednesday night, as low pressure organizes over the Nation’s heartland. A strong low pressure area is them forecast to ride from the northern Plains into the Upper Great Lakes Thursday morning. A series of warm and cold fronts tied to this system may bring a wintry mix of precipitation to the region to close out the work week.
