The Winter Storm has shifted and most of central New York won't see as much snow as anticipated. The Winter Storm Warning is now just an advisory in Oneida and Madison County. The Mohawk Valley is another story.

2 to 5 inches is all we'll see in Oneida and Madison counties. Herkimer County and the Mohawk Valley could see 3 times that much with up to 15 inches possible.

* WHAT...Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 8 to 15 inches, locally up to 20 inches in the Schoharie Valley and eastern Catskills are expected.

* WHERE...The Mohawk Valley, Lake George Saratoga region, the Greater Capital Region, eastern Catskills, Schoharie Valley, Helderbergs, and mid Hudson Valley in eastern New York.

* WHEN...From 7 AM this morning to 7 AM EST Thursday.

Plan on very difficult travel conditions, including during the evening commute. Snowfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour are possible this afternoon and evening. Northerly winds gusting to 30 mph this afternoon and evening may result in isolated power outages. Be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times.

Several schools are dismissing early and a snow emergency has been declared in Utica. All vehicles must be off the streets by noon.
