It's officially Spring, but no one gave Mother Nature the memo. Heavy snow could be headed to Central New York.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Central New York for late tonight into Saturday - and in some areas, the watch begins Thursday night. Anywhere where from 5 - 10 inches of snow could fall over the area. The National Weather Service cautions that the amount of snowfall is dependent upon the track of the storm - which is still not totally clear.
