Our winter storm is finally over. Steady snow has pushed out of the Finger Lakes and will not return as this storm system slowly weakens and drifts away.

There is still a fairly well organized band of snow over western New York. This band will drift south today before it stalls out. Extreme southwest New York and northwest Pennsylvania will have a snowy day with some moderate to heavy accumulations, especially near Lake Erie.

Travel on I-90 south of Buffalo will be difficult, but travel conditions across the rest of the region will slowly improve.

As road crews work hard to clean up this morning, be advised that roads will likely remain a bit sloppy for a while, especially secondary and rural roads. Just because it is no longer snowing does not mean some due caution isn’t necessary.

Some flurries will be possible throughout the day, but generally speaking, no real accumulations are expected. I’d love to hear how much snow you did end up getting, so please let me know!

Mostly quiet weather- with a few flurries- will persist into the weekend.

    About three miles from downtown Ithaca, a mile and a half from Cornell, on Snyder Hill Road, we got about a foot of snow.
