Winter weather advisory with gusty conditions for black Friday

Weather

We have a winter weather advisory starting 5 am tomorrow until 9am Saturday for Oneida County and northern Herkimer County. Anywhere from 2-5 inches of snow is expected with the lower end of about 2 inches expected in Utica and the Mohawk valley with higher snowfall totals around 5 inches expected in the higher elevations like the Tug Hill plateau and the North Country. If you plan on going black Friday shopping, make sure you’re giving yourself a little extra time before you head out because of hazardous road conditions. Winds will also be an issue tomorrow. Gusts of over 20 mph tomorrow morning and up towards 30 mph by Friday evening. Our low temperatures will be in the 30s tonight with highs tomorrow in the 30s and low 40s. Rain showers will continue throughout tonight, transitioning to a mix of rain and snow by Friday morning and lake effect snow showers by afternoon and will continue into the evening. It will slowly die down throughout Friday night into Saturday morning. Just a couple of light snow showers there. We’ll dry up in the afternoon with partly cloudy skies and clear conditions by the evening.
