Binghamton Braces for Final Winter Fling
Spring will arrive Wednesday, at least according to the calendar. People in the Twin Tiers may look forward to the imminent end of winter but first, there’s one more storm.
The National Weather Service office at Greater Binghamton Airport issued a winter weather advisory for the region. It’s scheduled to be in effect through eight o’clock Tuesday morning.
Snow and some ice are expected to cause travel problems around the Twin Tiers.
Some areas may receive snow accumulations of three to six inches. Snow amounts will be greatest at higher elevations.
Less than one-tenth of an inch of ice is possible in sections of the region.
In Binghamton, city officials are asking vehicle operators to follow alternate side of the street parking rules to help with snow removal efforts.
Alternate side regulations ended for the season last Friday but officials say it will help crews if vehicles are parked on one side of a street.
Officials also requested vehicle owners to try to use off-street parking whenever possible. Vehicles may be parked in lots at Binghamton parks.
