A low pressure system will move eastward across the Great Lakes and into Ontario this afternoon. A cold front trailing southward from this system will cross the area during the early to mid afternoon hours. Ahead of this front, it will be mild with scattered rain showers possible.
As the front moves through, gusty winds will develop with some locations seeing gusts of up to 50 mph. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the Lake Erie shore line, including the city of Erie through this evening.
Colder air will spread across the region this afternoon as the front moves to our east. The winds will remain gusty and rain showers will gradually change to snow showers through this evening.
It will be breezy with snow showers continuing overnight and into the day on Tuesday. The snow showers will taper off Tuesday afternoon as high pressure builds across the area.
A storm will pass to the south of the area late Tuesday night and Wednesday. Snowfall associated with this system could impact the area, depending on the track of the storm. This is something that will have to be monitored as there is a great deal of uncertainty in the models. A northward track could bring accumulating snow to much of the area, while a more southern track would mean mostly cloudy skies and little, if any, snowfall.
Once that system passes, any snow that is falling will end Wednesday night, with partly cloudy skies expected on Thursday.
