Central New York Wind Chill Advisory and Lake Effect Snow
It's still cold, but at least we can drop the term "bitterly." We kick off February with a Wind Chill Advisory from the National Weather Service and some lingering Lake Effect Snow to the North. Here's the latest.
Lighter winds are credited with keeping the wind chills down and it's slowing the spread of Lake Effect Snow off Lake Ontario.
WHAT... Wind Chill Advisory is in place until 11 this morning for the following counties: Northern Oneida-Yates-Seneca-Southern Cayuga-Onondaga-Steuben-
Schuyler-Chemung-Tompkins-Madison-Southern Oneida-Cortland-Chenango-Tioga-Broome-Bradford-Susquehanna-Northern Wayne-Wyoming-Lackawanna-Luzerne-Pike-Southern Wayne.
Wind chills of 10 below to 20 below zero will occur until about 9:30 a.m.
Lake Effect Snow will only reach into the Northwest part of Oneida County this morning. Oswego, Jefferson, and Lewis Counties are still experiencing Lake Effect Snow, although the forecast is down to inches instead of feet. Oswego will see another 3 to 6 inches today, Jefferson and Lewis 2 to 4.
The weekend will feature much milder temps. By Sunday we should crack the freezing mark with the lone concern being some sleet and freezing rain as the temperatures near 32 early Sunday afternoon.
