Lake Effect Snow Warning: Round Two Could Bring Up to 9 Inches of Snow
The snow isn't over yet. Round 2 will bring lake effect snow to northern Oneida County. Up to 9 inches is possible.
Most of central New York woke up to snow Monday morning. But more is on the way. The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning from 4pm to 4am Tuesday for Northern Oneida County including the city of Boonville.
Heavy lake effect snow expected with total snow accumulations of 5 to 9 inches this afternoon and tonight. Gusty 35 mph winds may cause patchy blowing snow. "Travel could be very difficult to impossible late this afternoon and tonight. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commutes."
The snow won't stay long. Wednesday temperatures will be in the low 50s and then we hit the 60s Thursday into the weekend.
Basically it's a typical week in central New York. Snow one day. 60s the next.
