Wintry Mixed Precipitation Causes Slow and Slick Travel Through the Night
A rapid transition from snow to sleet will continue across the region this evening with an ultimate switch to freezing rain in most locations before midnight. With the fast sleet transition snowfall totals will be reduced with many areas seeing 1"-3" with localized amounts of 3"-6" in the southern Adirondacks, Lake George-Saratoga Region, Vermont, the Berkshires, and the Taconics prior to midnight with up to 0.10" of a glaze of icing on top of the snow. The storm is a fast mover with the most if not all of the precipitation over by or shortly before daybreak. Slow and slick travel conditions should be expected through the pre-dawn hours with much improved road conditions by the Wednesday morning commute.
