Tuesday will be similar to the day on Monday but slightly cooler. North-northeast winds off the warm lake waters will generate more lake-effect rain/snow showers. The showers will linger through the afternoon hours before tapering off Tuesday evening. That’s when northerly winds die down and become westerly. High pressure will also move in clearing out any cloud cover. Clear skies Tuesday night will allow for temperatures to drop into the 20s overnight. Wednesday through Thursday afternoon, high pressure will allow for mostly sunny skies and dry conditions. Late Thursday, clouds will increase as a clipper system may bring light snow to the region. A reinforcing shot of cool air will hit the region late Thursday. High temperatures on Friday may not get out of the 20s.
