Central New York’s 1st Lake Effect Snow Warning of the Season
I don't know the exact ratio break down, so let's just say some CNYer's are going to be happy, while others will be frowning. Our 1st Lake Effect Snow Warning of the season is officially here.
The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning from 1a.m. Sunday to 7p.m. Monday. The warning includes Oneida, Madison and Onondaga counties with total snowfall of 6 to 12 inches possible.
The highest accumulations will occur in the hills south of Utica and Syracuse; near Tully, Cazenovia and Fabius. In addition heavier amounts will occur over extreme northwest Oneida County near Florence.
Things begin with rain showers this afternoon and change to snow showers tonight. Heavier snow is possible as we transition from rain to snow. The Lake Effect stuff will begin Sunday and become heavier throughout the day, eventually ending Monday night.
As always with Lake Effect, winds will increase at times to 35 m.p.h. Adding blowing snow to already snow covered roads. Here's a full 5 day forecast.
