The next few days shouldn't see any heavy snowfall, but won't lack for the white stuff

While the snowfall was steady Wednesday morning and early afteroon — prompting the Ontario County Sheriff's Office to advise against unnecessary travel — it was mostly over by mid- to late afternoon, with the advisory lifted as of 7 p.m.

Forecasters' snowfall projections had varied, but the Finger Lakes region appears to have gotten off relatively easy this time around.

So what's coming up? Well, no major storms, but the next several days will still bring snow, snow and more snow, though not much in the way of accumulation.

The National Weather Service reports a slight chance of snow showers Thursday afternoon, with little or no snow accumulation expected. Snow showers are forecast for Friday afternoon and night, and Saturday bringing a mix of rain and snow, with less than a tenth of an inch expected. No heavy snowfalls, but we aren't expected to see a day without the white stuff until Monday. So keep the gloves and windshield brushes close at hand.
