Your wake up forecast for January 2

Good morning! Here is a look at your wake up forecast this morning:

Temperatures: 7 to 13° across most of central New York. The North Country ranges from -10 to +7°.

Wind chills: -5 to 0° across most of central New York. The North Country ranges from -30° to -5°.

Sky condition & precipitation: Steady snow nearly everywhere. Some moderate to heavy snow is imbedded inside the snow shield. Check out Interactive Doppler Radar to see the snow right down to street-level.

Any notable driving condition issues?: It is snowing at very cold temperatures. This is important because the salt brine mixture that is used by plows to melt the snow will not be as effective at these temperatures versus if it was snowing at around 25 to 32°. Therefore, the combination of consistent steady falling snow and very cold temperatures, road conditions will be hazardous through today and tonight.

Special concerns: Hazardous road conditions due to snow.

Afternoon plans: Temperatures will be in the 5 to 10° range in CNY and even colder in the North Country. Winds will be NNE 10-15 MPH. Wind chills will be between -10 to -5 (below zero)°. Wind chills will be worse across the North Country. A steady snow will continue through the day. Therefore, hazardous road conditions will continue through the afternoon. Sunset is 4:41 PM.
