The storm that dropped snow and ice in the south could turn into a Nor'easter as it arrives. Most of Central New York will be on the outer cusp of the storm, but we may still get our fair share of snow. Enough for the National Weather Service to issue upgrade the Winter Weather Advisory to a Winter Storm Warning.
The warning is in effect until 10 a.m. Friday 2/14. Roads may become snow covered and slippery just in time for the drive home late this afternoon. Sounds like a reason to leave early. Here's the National Weather Services' advisory.
