After receiving over two inches of rain in the past week, it's beginning to look like winter may finally be at hand. The current forecast calls for three opportunities for snow over the next week.

1. Today
Today we could see flurries and snow showers.
The back-flow for yesterdays rain storm is producing widespread lake effect snows of Lakes Erie and Ontario. It is possible that some areas could see a dusting of snow, but even that might be a little on the high side. 30% chance of snow.

2. Monday-Tuesday
A weak low pressure system will likely spread some snow across the region Christmas eve into Christmas morning. Based on the current forecast, it is possible that the region could wake up to an inch or so of snow on Tuesday. 50% chance of snow.

3. Wednesday-Thursday
A third, and more significant system may impact the area Wednesday night. It is too early to pinpoint any snow totals, but there is the potential for notable accumulations. 60% chance of snow.
