WINTER WEATHER: Freezing drizzle continues into the morning, use caution during commute (full coverage)

Precipitation has slowed down significantly. While a Winter Weather Advisory remains active for a chunk of the region, the worst fell overnight. There have been some scattered power outages reported, as well as some accidents, so use caution heading out through the morning hours.

What to expect the rest of the day?

Conditions will improve as the day progresses. Temperatures will rise and with that the threat for frozen precipitation will end.

By 9-11 a.m. freezing rain should be wrapped up, and any remaining showers will be rain. High temperatures in the mid-30s can be expected throughout, with overnight lows dropping into the 20s before some snow showers build into the area tomorrow.

Use caution on roadways that haven’t been treated, and even those that have been this morning. There’s a thin layer of ice glaze over the top of the snow, which means it’ll take a little longer to get out the door.

When does the Winter Weather Advisory expire?

The Winter Weather Advisory isn’t set to expire until 6 p.m. for a large chunk of the region. That said, conditions will improve significantly as the day goes on.

What did we see across the Finger Lakes and Central New York?

A light accumulation of snow combined with freezing rain and sleet over the top. That was the common thread we saw around social media. It’s making for challenging conditions this morning. But it could have been much worse with most locations getting between a tenth- and quarter-inch of freezing rain.
