Officials with the National Weather Service have issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Cortland County, in effect from 7:00 this morning (January 8) until 1:00 tomorrow morning.
Anywhere from 3-5 inches of lake effect snow are expected, with strong winds gusting as high as 40 mph and creating a spontaneous threat for squalls.
That will transition into lake effect snow bands by late afternoon and into the evening.
Drivers are urged to use extreme caution and plan on slippery road conditions.
Areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility, with the hazardous conditions likely impacting both the morning and evening commutes.
Additionally, wind chills are expected to drop as low as 10 below zero tonight and remain in the sub-zero range tomorrow.
The inclement conditions are part of a larger storm making its way across the northeast and much of the country.
Call 511 for real-time road conditions and stay tune with WXHC for local weather and traffic updates.
