Northeastern Tompkins County is likely to be most affected, the NWS said.

At 7:30 a.m., the NWS doppler radar indicated a “moderate to heavy snow band” moving across a region that includes Ithaca and Tompkins County.

It added in a special forecast alert, characteristically written in all-caps:

“CONDITIONS CAN DETERIORATE AND CHANGE RAPIDLY OVER SHORT TRAVEL DISTANCES IN THIS SNOW BAND….WITH VISIBILITY QUICKLY DROPPING TO WELL UNDER A MILE. IF DRIVING…SLOW DOWN AND ANTICIPATE RAPIDLY CHANGING TRAVEL CONDITIONS. ROADS WILL BECOME HAZARDOUS AND SLIPPERY. SLOW DOWN AND ALLOW EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION.”

The alert was posted to the NWS’ Facebook page around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
