You knew it had to happen sometime. Well, sometime may be sooner than later when it comes to snow.

A blast of much colder air is on the horizon.   It’s going to be cold enough to support a wintry mix/snow at the end of the week.

On Friday,  there could be a mix to snow. Lake effect snow starts Saturday. There could also be snow showers Monday and Tuesday.

This is potentially going to be the first accumulating snow of the season- not for everybody- but possibly in the snowbelt;  there is higher potential because of very cool air over what’s considered mild lake waters.

In case you’re wondering, the first accumulating snowfall last year was in November.
