Despite Thursday’s (March 19) passing of the first day of Spring, national weather experts are watching for a potential winter snowstorm heading to the area late tonight and lasting through tomorrow night.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued from 3 am to midnight Monday, but escalating conditions could begin at some point late tonight.
Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are expected, which will move into the area late tonight and last through much of the day tomorrow especially at elevations beyond 1300 feet.
Lower elevations may see a mix of rain and snow tomorrow afternoon, with precipitation tapering off in the evening time.
Warm road temperatures should allow for minimal accumulation on most roads.
Still, travelling may be difficult at times, although it should already be kept to a minimum due to the governor’s stay home order related to COVID-19 that banned unnecessary travel and shut down all nonessential businesses.
Full list of area counties in a weather advisory: Cortland, Broome, Chenango, Madison, Northern Oneida, Otsego.
