Wintry Mixed Precipitation Causes Slow and Slick Travel Through the Night

A rapid transition from snow to sleet will continue across the region this evening with an ultimate switch to freezing rain in most locations before midnight.  With the fast sleet transition snowfall totals will be reduced with many areas seeing 1"-3" with localized amounts of 3"-6" in the southern Adirondacks, Lake George-Saratoga Region, Vermont, the Berkshires, and the Taconics prior to midnight with up to 0.10" of a glaze of icing on top of the snow.  The storm is a fast mover with the most if not all of the precipitation over by or shortly before daybreak.  Slow and slick travel conditions should be expected through the pre-dawn hours with much improved road conditions by the Wednesday morning commute.

Weather Advisories: FLURRIES ENDING - CONTINUED COLD AND WINDY, WITH BLOWING SNOW

Synopsis The strong area of low pressure responsible for the rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow in the past 24 hours, will continue to track east of the region, heading into the Canadian Maritimes Provinces by later this afternoon. Winds will remain quite gusty over the local area due to the tight pressure gradient around the storm. A few leftover flurries still could fall as well, although some clearing is expected as we progress through the afternoon. Blowing snow will remain prevalent due to the high winds and wind chills will be below zero at times this afternoon, as actual temperatures stay well below the seasonal norms.TRAVEL CONDITIONS While actual road conditions will have improved considerably from the early morning hours, drivers still could run into areas of blowing snow on roads passing through open fields that could create some slick spots, mainly on less traveled roadways.
