Good morning! Here is a look at your forecast at the bus stop this morning:
: 13 to 17° for the Syracuse metro area and much of CNY. Portions of the North Country have temperatures in the single digits to even below zero.
Wind chills: Most of CNY should be between 0 to 9°.
Sky condition & precipitation
: There is a spray of mainly steady light lake effect snow showers and flurries southeast of Lake Ontario and across much of CNY. Check out Interactive Doppler Radar and Triple Doppler Radar.
What should I wear outside?: A winter jacket will be necessary. You will also need to wear a hat and gloves or mittens. Of course, it is ultimately your decision on what you think you and your children should wear.
Any notable driving conditions
?: There was roughly 1-3â?? of snow overnight. Untreated roads for your Monday morning commute will be extra slippery. The worst roadways will be the first roads you encounter. The localized neighborhood streets will be the roughest, while interstate highways should be better. Be careful on on/off ramps on highways and while turning at any intersections this morning.
Special concerns: See above.
Afternoon ride home on the bus: Temperatures will be between 19 to 23°. Wind chill: 4 to 12°. Expect clouds, flurries with peeks of sunshine in CNY. Localized lake effect snow will start to get re-energized east-southeast of Lake Ontario and may impact the greater Syracuse metro area during or after the afternoon commute. Wind will be WNW 10-20 MPH. The sun will set at 5:29pm.
