--Make sure that all exposed skin is covered. If possible, avoid prolonged exposure to the cold to prevent frostbite and hypothermia.
Important frostbite reminders (on exposed skin) so you can make empowered decisions about being outside:

A Winter Weather ADVISORY is in effect for the following counties:
--Oswego, Wayne, & northern Cayuga counties until 11 AM
A Winter Weather ADVISORY is issued in this case because a spray of lake effect snow showers, flurries and at times steadier lake effect snow squalls will be over these counties causing accumulating snow. While total snow amounts are not expected to be extremely heavy, there should be enough snow to cause travel trouble. You will find a large difference in snowfall amounts. The weather can vary from locally heavy snow to flurries even within these counties. See below for the forecast for new snow.
