New York State is getting ready for a powerful spring storm that officials are alerting residents about.

The weather is about to change, again, as the sunshine will fade behind clouds that will bring, rain, freezing rain and snow. It is a far cry from the 65 degree mark we saw in some of February.

The Governor of New York State has issued an alert for the residents in portions of the state as power outages and poor driving conditions are possible.

According to reports, Governor Kathy Hochul is urging New Yorkers to prepare for hazardous travel conditions, power outages, and more. Rain is expected to turn to snow tonight and continue through Wednesday night. Areas of higher elevation could see anywhere from six to 12 inches of snow!

A Weather Warning From New York State

In a post on "X", the Governor states, "We are closely monitoring a storm system that is expected to bring heavy snow, rain, and gale force winds to parts of our state".

The National Weather Service in Buffalo, New York posted a watch for areas of New York State as well.

The cold, northeast winds were blowing hard on Tuesday morning and you could certainly feel Old Man Winter's grip again. As we watch our friends and family having fun in Florida, or on a beach this spring break, we can watch the snow fall on the early spring flowers. The good news? It looks like we will get back to a more "normal" weather pattern as we wait for the eclipse.
