Another Winter Weather Advisory has been issued in Cortland County from 10 am – 10 pm tomorrow (January 18), as significant snowfall is expected across the state.
Most areas in Central New York will see three to five inches in the forecast, with certain regions at higher elevations having the potential for six inches to one foot of accumulation.
On top of the snow, freezing temperatures will overspread the region, with wind chills as high as 35 mph expected to hit ten-below zero at times.
These conditions are expected to create difficult driving conditions throughout the weekend.
Governor Cuomo is urging all residents to use caution this weekend and keep a close eye on local weather forecasts for developments.
“This storm system will deliver a significant amount of snow and strong wind gusts across many portions of the state, creating potentially dangerous driving conditions,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our state emergency response teams are closely monitoring the forecast and I am urging New Yorkers to not only ready themselves for this weather, but also be sure to check on friends, family members and neighbors to ensure they are prepared as well.”
