After analyzing the very latest weather data from a variety of computer models available to us, it now appears that the majority, if not all of the viewing area will receive only snow. A wintry mixture of sleet and freezing rain is still possible between Binghamton, Oneonta and Albany and points southeast into the Catskills. With snow the only precipitation type, the amount of snow is still variable depending on where you live.
Click on my snowfall forecast graphic here for the amount of snow you will have on the ground by 7pm. Note that the heaviest snow will likely occur across areas near the Route 20 corridor and especially south of this along the central and southern tier and Finger Lakes. The highest elevations of these locations will likely receive the higher end of the 7-12" that we have forecasted for these central and southern tier locations. Along the Thruway corridor, expect between 5-7" of snow. North of the Route 31 corridor expect 3-5" of snow. However, further north into sections of the North Country, expect only 1-3" of snow.
