No Trick. Patchy Ice Possible in Central New York for Halloween
The National Weather Service issued a special statement for Northern Oneida, Onondaga, Madison, Southern Oneida, Cortland, Chenango and Otsego counties for possible patchy ice early this morning.
Early scattered light showers and sprinkles could turn to ice with temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30s in some spots across central New York. The good news is temps will rise quickly to above freezing after the rain moves through.
Use caution this morning, especially on bridges and overpasses where water freezes first. Do not assume the roads are just wet; patchy ice is possible.
After a brief break, the rain returns and could cause flooding. An extended period of rainy weather is anticipated Wednesday afternoon through Friday night. There is a potential for excessive rainfall and given that the ground that is already saturated, flooding is possible.
