Heavy Snow Warning in Effect for Most of NY
Get ready to get pounded as the first major storm of the year will is just getting ready to cross into New York state. Most of the state if not all will see some snow and all of the Golden Snowball cities will most likely be getting hit pretty good including Albany and Binghamton.
Anywheres from 10 inches - 25 inches is expected between this afternoon and tomorrow night and it should be a steady snowfall with probably very few breaks in between. Check with your local forecasters because this will most likely be a major snow event. By the time the storm is over Syracuse and Buffalo should be well over their average snowfall to date amounts. Rochester, which is 20 inches below normal may be right around their average snowfall and Binghamton and Albany will be making up some lost snow with just this one snow storm.
CoasterBGM from the forum seen this storm coming together almost a week ago and gave us a heads up. Kudos to Coaster who is from Binghamton for predicting this one. That's one of the nice things about the forum at Golden Snowball is that we have some Professional meteorologists but also several students from State college and also a couple of other weather knowledgeable people that visit and keep us up to date. You can read whats going on without registering and if you would like to post it only takes a minute to register so check out the forum if you get some free time at http://goldensnowball.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=1 Most likely there will be updates throughout this storm.
On a Serious Note - Take it easy out there on the roads. There is nothing sadder than reading about a serious accident in the paper due to road conditions. Your driving a machine that weighs tons so don't expect it to do what you want it to when the roads are slippery or snow covered. Give yourself time!!! You have to warm the car up, clean it off and then you will be driving slower so leave an hour early for work if you have to. Most bosses won't get mad if you get there early. I did it once a long time ago. Of course my boss almost had a stroke to see me there early, the one who was normally running to punch the clock. On second thought take a day off tomorrow if it's nasty out and spend it with the kids. If this storm pans out to be what they are thinking it will be the chances are the kids might get a freebie tomorrow. Sorry about the lecture but I really hate reading about the serious car and snowmobile accidents and there have been too many this season. Have a great day all and keep tabs on this storm!
