It is a snow day in Central New York!
All of the major school districts in the region are calling in school closings, ahead of about one foot of snow that is expected to fall before tomorrow.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning until Midnight ahead of freezing rain that will transition into snow this morning. That transition is expected between 6:00 a.m and 7:00 a.m.
Travel will be extremely difficult and dangerous. Once the snow starts it will continue well into the afternoon, falling at a rate of close to two inches an hour. By tonight as much as a foot of fresh snow will blanket most of the region.
Saturday, the snow will stop and the sun will come out. Though it will be quite cold. Temperatures will rebound Sunday into Monday.
