About two to four inches of snow are possible, along with a tenth of an inch of ice, the advisory says. This will cause limited visibility and slippery roadways at east throughout Monday night.
The National Weather Service said around noon , “Looks like the transition from snow to mix then rain may occur faster therefore less snow accumulation for the area.Will post a new briefing this afternoon once the details are clearer.”
The advisory, though, is issued until Tuesday at 7 a.m. as of Monday afternoon and snow showers are likely throughout Tuesday.
Temperatures Sunday and Monday have both hit all time lows of – 12 degrees in Ithaca for both days, according to the Northeast Regional Climate Center.
There is, however, a silver lining to the weather in Ithaca. The National Weather Service says that though snow is in the forecast off-and-on throughout the week, high temperatures are expected to be in the upper 30s with low temperatures in the mid-20s.
The exception is Thursday when high temperatures in the day will be in the mid-20s and low temperatures at night will be just less than 10 degrees.
