Late Season Snow Storm Could Dump Up to Foot in Parts of CNY
Enough already! It's well past April Fool's Day. We're almost in May for crying out loud. But Old Man Winter continues to hang around and could bring up to a foot of snow in parts of Central New York.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning from 6 PM Monday (4/18) through 12 PM Tuesday (4/19) in Oneida, Madison, Chenango, Otsego, Delaware, and Sullivan counties.
The storm will begin with a mix of rain and snow over most of Central New York on Monday afternoon before changing over to all snow later in the evening. It'll change back over to a rain-snow mix by Tuesday morning. The worst of the storm will bring heavy, wet snow that could cause power outages and make travel difficult as roads become quickly snow-covered and slick.
