Winter storm causing school cancellations, hazardous driving conditions around central New York
Winter storm warnings continue for much of central and western New York, as a nor'easter moves its way along the East Coast. The National Weather Service has issued warnings for almost all of central New York until Thursday morning. Jefferson, Lewis and Oswego Counties are under a winter weather advisory.
Madison and Onondaga Counties have issued travel advisories during the storm. Driving conditions around central New York could be hazardous, especially during the morning commute on Wednesday.
Officials say if you have to drive during the day Wednesday, drive slowly and leave plenty of room between your car and the car in front of you.
The weather is also causing some school delays and closings.
According to the National Weather Service, moderate to heavy snow will fall around central New York for most of the day Wednesday.
A total of 5-10 inches of new snow could fall by the time the snow exits the region early Thursday, with higher amounts possible, especially to the south and east of the Syracuse area.
On Thursday, skies will be mostly cloudy and most of the region should see a few snow showers. Highs on Thursday will be near 35.
