The storm is then expected to turn to a more wintry mix into Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

“The wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain will continue through much of tonight … becoming spotty rain Wednesday morning,” the National Weather Service says.

Some parts of CNY could see up to 4 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for the area, including Ithaca. It will last from 1 p.m. this afternoon until 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Wind gusts are expected to reach up to 35 mph, the weather service says. “Untreated roads will become hazardous beginning this afternoon; minot tree damage and isolated power outages may occur tonight due to the combination of ice and gusty winds,” the NWS says.
