Yet another busy day in the weather center as freezing rain continues for parts of Central NY this morning, mainly to the north and east of Utica as the cold air lingers. Freezing rain changes over to plain rain by the afternoon as temperatures climb into the mid to upper 30s.


Cold front moves in by the late afternoon into the early evening with rain changes back to snow. A quick accumulation of snow this evening as the back end of the front moves through. In addition, any water that accumulated from the rain will refreeze, creating icy conditions.

A brief period of quiet weather after Midnight into Christmas Eve day. Snow begins to arrive late Christmas eve, continuing into Christmas Day. Snow will be widespread, with a general 3"-6" of accumulation with the heaviest accumulations to the north of the Mohawk Valley.

By Christmas afternoon, cold air pushes in with windy conditions. Blowing and drifting snow possible with whiteout conditions. Once the cold air moves in, lake effect snow develops for Northern Oneida into the Tug Hill. Heavy lake effect snow is likely for this location for Monday night and continuing into Tuesday. Temperatures will not warm up above the teens for most of the week with overnight lows at or below zero.
