(11/11/19) When the snowstorm ends, lake effect snow will kick on as colder air sinks in from Canada.
Freezing rain and sleet possible Monday evening (Veterans Day) before a cold front moves through bringing heavy snow and colder temps after midnight. By 7 am Tuesday morning snow accumulations are predicted to be:
- Utica and Rome: 3-7″
- Herkimer: 1-4″
- Old Forge: 7-11″
- Boonville: 7-11″
- Cooperstown & Oneonta: Dusting-2″
Snow will likely be on top of a layer of ice, especially along and south of the Thruway. This will create hazardous road conditions for Tuesday morning’s commute. Use caution as motorists adjust to wintry conditions.
Once the storm pulls away Tuesday morning, gusty NW winds will kick on lake effect snow Tuesday and into Tuesday night. Narrow bands of light, fluffy snow will be heavy at times.
Temperatures plummet Tuesday night into the single digits with wind chills as cold as -4°. Temperatures will only reach the lower 20s Wednesday afternoon. This will be near-record low temperatures for mid-November.
