Winter Weather Alert Issued for Many Parts of New York State
It's been an interesting last week or so across New York State, with the abnormally high temperatures for this time of year and the high winds which have come with the drastic temperature changes.
That happened again this week, with highs in the 60's and a cold front sweeping through the state.
That will also bring snow and rain with the changing temperatures as well, with a new weather alert issued for many parts of New York state.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all of Western New York, along with northern central New York and counties off of Lake Ontario.
This winter weather advisory is a little more tricky, because much of the precipitation will come in the form of ice and freezing rain, which could made the commute for Friday morning difficult.
For Western New York, the alert goes from 1 am to 10 am on Friday, although the times can vary to later in the morning (4 am) for other portions of the state. The timing for everyone will be Friday morning, so the drive to work will be a bit messy.
The National Weather Service asks people to take extra time for their drive into work on Friday morning and hopefully there aren't any accidents that happen because of the ice and freezing rain.
As for next week, there could be another system by mid-week that drops some snow on the state, but it's too far out for any meaningful details.
