Gusty WNW winds  along with seasonably cold weather today. There will also be some snow showers around too mostly over the Adirondacks, Western Catskills, Greens, Northern Berkshires and Taconics; these areas could see a quick coating.

The afternoon will be seasonably cold, dry and blustery with sun, as well as a few mountain flurries. Expect seasonably cold weather Sunday night, followed by milder 50s weather and sunshine for Monday.  Another surge of warmth is slated for midweek with clouds on Tuesday and some light precip this day - perhaps a light morning mix of wet snow/rain followed by some afternoon drizzle or light rain. Wednesday looks to be another mild day with rain, perhaps even another round of thunderstorms ahead of a sharp cold front. This front will move through the region during Thursday morning. Thursday will start off with temperatures near 50° and showers but by afternoon look for the mercury to fall into the 30s with strong NW winds and snow showers.

By the end of the week much colder air will return. March looks to be raoring in like a lion.
