Winter storm warnings are in effect for the most of the region until Monday night. Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties are under a winter weather advisory.  According to the National Weather Service, the snow is expected to move into central New York Sunday night and will last through the day Monday, with the heaviest snow expected between 12 a.m. and noon Monday. By the time the storm moves out of the region, 6-12 inches of snow could fall around the area, with higher amounts possible along the southern tier and lower amounts across the north country. The storm is expected to be out of the area by late in the day Monday. 

With the heaviest snow expected early on Monday, the morning commute is likely to be slow. Roads will be snow covered and slippery. You can find real time traffic conditions from the state Department of Transportation and we will keep you updated on any school delays and closings.
