The National Weather Service has issued a:

A Winter Weather Advisory for Oneida, Southern Herkimer, Northern Fulton, Madison, Chenango and Otsego Counties from Wednesday night until Thursday evening.

A Winter Storm Warning for Lewis, Northern Herkimer and Hamilton Counties from Wednesday night until Thursday evening.

The potential for widespread accumulating snow is expected to begin Wednesday night and last through most of Thursday. Here are the details.

A cold front moves through the region on Wednesday. Ahead of the front, expect widespread light rainfall. Most areas pick up less than 0.5" of rain before the front arrives. Highs look to climb into the 50s. The rain changes to snow around midnight across the region. Heavy snow is expected to fall Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, with snowfall rates up to 1" per hour. The heaviest snow is expected to end by daybreak, with widespread, steady, light snow for Thursday. Here's a look at the snowfall forecast:

Most areas are expected to pick up a few inches of snowfall.

The bottom line is plan on dealing with some travel issues early Thursday. Have the snowblower ready to go again, this will probably be the last time you'll need it this season, as the weather is expected to warm up for the foreseeable future.
