A winter storm warning is now in effect for most of Central New York for Sunday morning through Monday evening
Snow and sleet are expected to play a big role in the busiest travel day of the year. We're tracking an area of low pressure that will approach our area from the west.
- Timing: Snow is expected to begin on Sunday morning. Snow continues Sunday afternoon, Sunday evening, and Monday.
- Impact: Roads are expected to turn slippery Sunday afternoon, with tricky travel expected Sunday evening, Sunday night, through Monday morning. Warm air aloft will cause snow to change over to sleet Sunday afternoon.
- Accumulation: This is a long event, and we decided to break this down. Sunday's accumulation looks to be between 3-6". An additional 3-6" of snow is possible Sunday night into Monday.
Saturday's weather is expected to be dry, so traveling is recommended on this day over Sunday, if possible. If you do have to travel on Sunday, give yourself plenty of extra time and pack some patience on the roads. Airport delays are also possible, especially late Sunday.
Snow is expected to continue through Monday night, with several more inches of accumuation. Here's the expected TOTAL snowfall for Sunday morning through early Tuesday:
