The National Weather Service’s Facebook page posted an image Thursday morning predicting the Ithaca area could see around 1 inch of snow.

The NWS website now suggests that total snowfall here will likely be less than that — maybe around half an inch.

The Ithaca Police Department posted a release Thursday saying:

“For the first time this year the temperatures are at or below freezing and the roads are slick and icy. Please drive carefully and give yourself plenty of time to make it to your destination safely.”

And Cornell’s Joe Wilensky took the following photo for the university’s Facebook page. The post noted, “Now THIS is what November at Cornell feels like!”

Here’s the weather service’s forecast for today and the rest of the week:
