Areas to the north and east of Binghamton are expected to get several inches of snow through December 13.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 p.m. on the 13th for several counties in New York State, including Broome, Tioga, Delaware and Tompkins Counties and Susquehanna and Wayne Counties in Pennsylvania.

At 2:30 a.m. December 12, with little or no snow falling, road crews were out salting roads in the City of Binghamton.

NOAA says winds could also complicate travel even more in the advisory area, gusting as high as 40 miles per hour and causing blowing and drifting snow in some areas.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is encouraging Keystone State residents to prepare for winter driving.  PennDOT reminds residents there are resources available to help smooth their travel.  The agency recently answered frequently asked winter weather questions in a blog post and offers graphics and animation regarding driver preparations, winter operations and plow tracking.  That information is available at www.511PA.com
