    4:30 am- Looks like over 20 inches of snow just a mile south of the Tompkins county line, South Danby/Spencer. Great forecasting!
    Will update after the snow fall ends.

    4.5 inches of almost weightless snow at 10:30 PM in Slaterville. I think maybe we are just far enough southeast of Ithaca to get into the higher range of accumulation – we’ll see what the night brings!

      There is a very intense band right now from Elmira to Richford that very well may drift north into your area for a time tonight. Snowfall rates very well could eclipse 2″/hr

    It started snowing lightly in Penn Yan at about 2:10 pm. Snowing more now and accumulating on all surfaces. Street in front of our home looks slippery. Snow isn’t measurable yet but will be before long. Good job with this no hype forecast!
