The Winter Storm Warning will expire at 2 pm and includes: Ontario, Monroe, Livingston, and the rest of the Western Finger Lakes.

Visibility will be as low as a quarter of a mile at times during the heaviest snowfall during the overnight hours — making the morning commute a challenge. In addition, the wet snow could cause minor power outages, and take down small limbs — as trees have begun gaining vegetation. A Winter Weather Advisory, which expires at 11 am and includes: Cayuga, Cortland, Onondaga, Tompkins, Schuyler, Seneca, Yates, and Wayne counties as well. An additional 3 to 6 inches of snowfall is expected in the advised area, before the system moves off to the east — ending the risk for snowfall temporarily. The morning commute could be a challenge, and drivers are urged to exercise extra caution — allowing for extra travel time to work. The National Weather Service says drivers should be prepared for slippery roads, limited visibility, and quickly changing conditions.Local Weather Resources:Western FLXEastern FLXThruway ConditionsReports on Social Media
