A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Jefferson, Lewis and Oswego counties through 10pm Sunday evening.
A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slick and slippery conditions, especially on untreated roads.
If your area has a winter weather advisory, here is what you should do:
-- Know which county you live in, and where you are in relation to steady snow.
-- While the amount of snow in the advisory area will not be overwhelming, enough snow will occur to cause snow covered and slippery conditions, especially on untreated and unplowed roads.
-- Have a winter storm kit ready in your car in case you are stranded.
-- Keep an eye on Interactive Doppler and Triple Doppler radars on CNYcentral.com.
-- Keep your phone with your CNYcentral mobile app turned on so if warnings are issued you will know.
-- Periodically check NBC-3, CBS-5 and CW-6 for updates.
