Snow it begins. The first widespread accumulating snow of the season is coming to Central New York. And it'll be just in time for a sloppy and slippery mid-week commute.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued from 6 PM Tuesday, November 15 until 1 PM Wednesday, November 16.

Snow is expected to move into Central New York sometime Tuesday evening before mixing with rain, freezing rain, and sleet during the overnight hours. The morning commute could be messy, especially in Boonville, Hamilton, Oneida, Rome, Utica, and Norwich areas.

You may even need to shovel depending on where you live. 2 to 5 inches is expected with more snow falling in the higher elevations. With the anticipated ice, the first shovel of the season could be a heavy one.
