Light Snow for the Start of April in the Twin Tiers
April is coming in with weather more typical for late February.
The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for much of the Twin Tiers until 5 p.m. April 1.
Authorities say total snow accumulations of 2 to 5 inches are possible, especially over higher elevations.
The advisory area includes in the Twin Tiers, Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Tioga, Delaware Tompkins and Oneida Counties in New York and Bradford and Susquehanna Counties in Pennsylvania.
Forecasters say the heaviest snowfall early in the morning will taper to afternoon snow showers.
Motorists should expect slippery road conditions at least through the morning commute. Slow down and use caution while traveling.
Only a couple schools in the region had checked in overnight with announced schedule changes. Those include the cancelation of Thursday classes in the Unatego School District and a switch to a "virtual snow day" for students of the Elk Lake Schools and Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center in Pennsylvania.
Emergency Services officials early in the morning said, while snow had been falling at a steady rate at times overnight, there did not appear to be any accumulation on roadways by 5 a.m.
Again, forecasters warn that accumulations will be greatest in the higher elevations and snow will be more prone to stick on colder surfaces like bridge decks and ramps.
Meanwhile, the winter alternate side of the street parking restrictions in Johnson City expired March 31. Alternate side parking ended in the City of Binghamton two weeks ago.
