Nor’easter Stella is tracking towards the region right now, and will dump considerable amounts of snow on the northeast in multiple phases over the next couple of days.
There are blizzard warnings in effect for NYC and high wind warnings up the coast. Current predictions have our area of Upstate New York seeing 12-18″ of snowfall through Wednesday. The storm is expected to start on Tuesday morning between 7:00 and 9:00am and will continue well into Wednesday.
Snowfall rates of 1-2″ per hour, plus the threat of high winds and 35mph gusts will drastically cut visibility, and make driving a hazard. Prepare today, and be safe tomorrow!
Forecast remains on track with snow developing Tuesday morning…moderate to heavy at times Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. pic.twitter.com/W9235fZUTu
