ITHACA, N. Y. — Expect a snowy, windy Wednesday in Ithaca that will be followed by more days of blustery winter.

The high temperature is expected to be around 27 degrees with gusts of wind up to 21 mph, the National Weather Service says.

The most likely chance for snow will be around 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. when there is up a 40 percent chance for snow, but precipitation is possible all day, according to The Weather Channel website. 

The sudden change in weather comes just after Ithaca broke record for the warmest temperature on record, hitting 62 degrees Monday, the Northeast Regional Climate Center says.

After a sunny but cold Thursday (another 27 degree high temperature), snow is expected to start up again in the evening and continue into Friday, which will also be just below freezing as a high temperature.

No need to worry about Winter Storm Quo if you plan on staying in Tompkins County for the next day or so. Quo, which brought snow and wind to the Upper Midwest, began moving northeast since yesterday but is primarily impacting areas in northern New York and Canada.
