SEVERE WX : Wind Advisory View Alerts

Freezing rain, sleet, and snow on Sunday

A wintry mix could lead to some slippery roads as temperatures hover around freezing on Sunday.

Posted: Dec 15, 2018 5:41 PM

Earlier today a low pressure system developed to our south and will be arriving into our area tomorrow morning, bringing with it rain and warmer air. This rain will interact with some colder air moving in from the north. As a result of this tomorrow we will be expecting freezing rain, sleet, and snow. 

To give you a timeline, we will start with freezing rain in the morning before transitioning into a mixture of freezing rain, snow
and sleet. Some rain may mix in at times before changing to snow at some point in the afternoon.

Snowfall totals will vary by region and elevation. Higher elevations in the eastern parts of of viewing area will see close to 2 inches of snow. Heading further east snowfall totals will drop to trace amounts to 1 inch.

The tricky part with this system is the fact that temperatures are going to hover right around freezing, making it difficult to determine how long we could see sleet and freezing rain and when it will finally transition over to just snow. Heading further south and east we are expected to see more ice accumulations. This has prompted a Winter Weather Advisory.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for:

Oneida, Madison, and Otsego county from 2AM Sunday through 8PM Sunday.

Southern Herkimer, Fulton, and Montgomery county from 7AM Sunday through 4AM Monday.

Expected ice accumulations for most will be around a tenth of an inch. Roadways, parking lots, and sidewalks could become slippery during this time. If you are driving Sunday please consider giving yourself a little extra time to safely get to and from your destinations.
