Posted: Dec 17, 2019 6:33 PM

One down, one more round of snow to go for this week. The first round of snow today produced a general 2-4" of snow regionwide. Here's a look at some snowfall totals:

Cassville 4.6"
Edmeston 4"
Barneveld 4"
Cooperstown 4"
Deerfield 3.2"
Milford 3"
Frankfort 3"
Stratford 3"
Utica 3"
New Harford 2.5"
Sauquoit 2.4"

Going forward, we're tracking an arctic front that looks to bring a burst of snow to the region. The snow squalls look to begin north of the valley in the morning, bringing heavy snow to the Tug Hill. This band of snow drops south in the early afternoon, causing the potential of whiteout conditions. Here's a look at the timing of when the snow band arrive:

Should squalls develop the National Weather Service will issue a snow squall warning. This is to alert travelers of approaching squalls. Like thunderstorm warnings, they are issued for a very specific area for a short period of time (an hour or less). It's best to avoid travel when under a snow squall warning - they are notorious for causing traffic accidents.
