Central New York has managed to avoid a significant storm so far this winter, but it looks like our luck could be ending.

A developing winter storm could dump as much as 10 inches of snow on Central New York, if the conditions are right - but those conditions are still changing.

According to the National Weather Service in Binghamton, current forecast models suggest that upstate NY could be in for a "potentially major winter storm" this weekend.

Syracuse.com reports the National Weather Service meterologist in Binghamton says. “Many of our longer-range models are pointing toward a snowstorm. Since it is five to six days out, there is considerably uncertainty.”

Currently, there's a Hazardous Weather Outlook for all of Central New York, as forecasters continue to track conditions and refine potential snowfall predictions.
