Clouds, snow for the North Country this weekend
Saturday, February 3, 2018 - 11:58 am

Clouds and snow will dominate the weather in St. Lawrence County over the weekend, and while the chance of snow continues into next week, we might see some sun on Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

High pressure is building across the North Country this morning. Developing southwest winds from Lake Ontario will bring some localized lake effect snow across southern St. Lawrence County with light snow accumulation possible, the NWS predicts.

Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy with just a few flurries with highs in the upper teens to around 20 today.

Forecasters predict a more widespread snowfall across the North Country Sunday into Sunday night. Highs on Sunday will be around 30, dropping to 10 degrees or less that night. Moderate snowfall accumulations are possible, especially in the Adirondacks, forecasters say.

Tuesday night into Wednesday, forecasters say additional snow or possibly a wintry mix is possible.
