Moderate to heavy snow over the eastern Finger Lakes will spread west throughout the morning, with most of the region experiencing snow throughout today.At 6:30am, here in Groton, over 4″ of snow had already fallen with heavy snow and gusty winds ongoing. Similar conditions are spreading west as low pressure near Boston stalls out and the precipitation over central New York pivots.
Because the precipitation will pivot more than it will actually move, areas in the eastern Finger Lakes that already have accumulations will continue to see snow well into the afternoon.
This storm is finally starting to live up to its forecasts. I have no changes to the snow map I put out last night, but if I did, they would probably be increases in snow amounts for some areas. All in all, I am finally feeling confident and good about my forecasts.
The storm is here- or it is coming. Avoid travel if you can today, as road conditions will likely only get worse across most of the Finger Lakes.
