UTICA - The first widespread snowstorm of the season moves into Central New York Thursday evening, continuing into Friday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for all of Central New York from 5:00 p.m. Thursday until 10:00 a.m. Friday.

Snow looks to move into the region from south to north starting after 5:00 p.m. The heaviest snow falls late Thursday into early Friday morning, making for a tricky morning commute. The snow will be heavy and dense, create slippery roads as well as power outages.

A general 7-10 inches of snow is likely by noon on Friday. Snow tapers off to showers by the mid-to-late morning on Friday.

The City of Utica has issued a snow emergency beginning Thursday night. The city says "All vehicles must be off the streets by 11:00 p.m. to facilitate safe passage for snow removal and emergency services."

The Village of Dolgeville has issued a parking adviory, banning vehciles from parking on village streets after 1:00 a.m. Friday.

The Village of Cooperstown issued a snow emergency effective Thursday at 8:00 p.m., which expires Friday at 6:00 p.m.

The pre-winter storm slammed parts of the southern United States and lower Midwest on Wednesday, causing five deaths on slippery roads and stranding travelers for more than eight hours on an icy Arkansas interstate.
