Weather: Warming Wednesday in Central New York; light snow possible

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Central New York will warm up Wednesday despite a chance for a bit of rain and snow at times during the day.

An inch or two of snow is possible in some places across parts of Central New York Wednesday. The biggest concern, however, will be a light coating of ice over the snow early Wednesday morning.

Temperatures will warm up later Wednesday with highs in the mid 40s. A strong breeze is also expected.

Beginning Wednesday night we can expect scattered lake effect snow in areas southeast of Lake Ontario, the National Weather Service said. The lake effect snow will last through Thursday.

A cold air mass moving toward our region Thursday could mean some more lake effect snow, Time Warner Cable News said. But significant accumulation isn’t expected and our temperature on Friday should be in the low 40s.
