Wintry mix on the way for Wednesday night

A mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain is expected to impact our weather Wednesday night into Thursday.

Posted: Feb 19, 2019 4:29 PM

Winter rolls along here in Central New York, and the weather remains active. Monday's snowfall puts us close to 75" on the season for Utica, which is pretty close to average. The next weather maker brings a wintry mix to the region on Wednesday night. Here are the details...

Snow breaks out 4-6pm Wednesday. The snow starts out light but steady. A light coating to 2" is expected across the region, just enough to make side roads a bit slippery for the evening commute. We don't expect any major problems early on, but things will change heading into Wednesday night.

Snow turns to sleet and freezing rain afer 7pm. This wintry mix is expected to make untreated surfaces slippery. The mixed precipitation lasts through midnight, before milder air arrives late Wednesday night. A changeover to plain rain is expected by early Thursday morning across the region.

The Thursday morning commute features mostly rain, with a few cold pockets of freezing rain north and east of Utica. Rain turns briefly back to snow, but little snow accumulation is expected on the back end of this event.

Another wintry mix is possible on Sunday. This storm has been trending farther west, meaning more of it could be rain rather than ice or snow. Stay tuned.
