Sunday Morning Ice Update

finger lakes weather forecast sunday december 16  2018 freezing rain ice
Pockets of freezing rain are ongoing and will continue this morning, mostly in higher elevations of the Southern Tier and Central New York.

A Few Pockets of Ice

Precipitation is moving into the Finger Lakes from the south as of 6:30 am on Sunday.

Temperatures across the area are mostly a degree or two above freezing, so much of this precipitation will fall as rain.

The best chance for icy conditions this morning will be in the higher elevations of the Southern Tier and Central New York.

Temperatures will not move much until after 9 or 10 am, so the threat for pockets or brief periods of ice will remain at least into the mid-morning hours.

Be alert for changing road conditions.

Also, be aware that bridge surfaces tend to be cooler, so ice may be possible on bridges while the rest of the road is just wet.

Precipitation will taper off this afternoon and may end as a bit of snow.

Additional snow is likely on Monday as a cold front and lake effect move into the area. A couple inches may be possible, along with some heavier bursts during the afternoon.

More details on that Monday morning.
