Freezing rain, sleet, and snow for Sunday

A warm pocket of air will bring freezing rain and sleet overnight changing to heavy wet snow by the morning with an accumulation, especially to the South of the Mohawk Valley with a Winter Weather Advisory issued.

Posted: Nov 24, 2019 12:15 AM

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Otsego County until 3:00pm Sunday for freezing rain
with a glaze of ice on the ground and heavy wet snow around 1 to 4 inches of accumulation. A Winter
Weather Advisory is also in effect for Chenango County until 5:00am Sunday for freezing rain with a
glaze of ice accumulation.

Overnight, freezing rain will move into Central New York. Temperatures will be below freezing at the
surface but we have a warm pocket of air aloft. This means the precipitation we have overnight will
fall as rain then freeze on the ground. We could have some accumulation of ice, especially to the South
of the Mohawk Valley.

Sunday morning, a cold pocket of air then moves in aloft. This means the precipitation will fall as
snow. This could be heavy at times, especially to the South of the Mohawk Valley.

Sunday afternoon, this cold pocket of air aloft stays in place but our temperatures at the surface will
warm up to just above freezing in the mid to upper 30s. This means the snow will melt as it falls
creating wet snow as it reaches the ground. This can cause slushy roads as it accumulates.

Sunday evening, this system moves out of the region leaving us with just mostly cloudy skies. However,
we could still have some ice and wet snow on the roads, so be careful driving.

Overall, we could see up to one tenth of an inch of ice accumulation to the South of the Mohawk Valley,
especially on hilltops. Also, we could have snowfall accumulation of a trace to 1 inch for the Mohawk
Valley and Adirondacks, 1 to 2 inches to the South of the Mohawk Valley, and 2 to 4 inches for Otsego
County.
