Get the snow shovels and snow blowers out. You may need them this weekend. The first 'significant snow of the season' could be on the way.

The National Weather Service says a dynamic system will cross the Great Lakes region. This may produce strong winds Saturday, November 18th followed by the first significant lake effect snow of the season east and southeast of the lakes, mainly in the Tug Hill region and Western New York. But it all depends on which way the wind blows.

Colder air will move into the region later Saturday night and Sunday, dropping temperatures to -9 to -22 Celsius and setting the stage for Lake Effect Snow late Sunday into Monday and possibly Tuesday, just in time for Thanksgiving travel.

It's too early to tell how much we may see in central New York but we're keeping a close eye on the storm and possible snow totals.
