Weather Warnings & Advisories Continue

Weather Warnings & Advisories Continue

Posted: Updated:

A large winter weather storm marching up the East Coast started to hit the north country overnight.

Snow is expected to continue late into the night.

Places where snow will fall the most -- mostly south and east of Watertown -- will get another 3 to 6 inches of snow before it's over.

The farther north you are, the less snow you'll see.

The heavy, wet snow will make driving difficult at times and also reduce visibility.

Add in gusty winds and there's a chance of scattered power outages.

Roads are slick enough in places to cause closings and cancellations.

There's a winter storm warning for Jefferson and Lewis counties until 11 p.m. Friday.

All but the northeast corner of St. Lawrence County has a winter weather advisory until 1 a.m. Saturday.

Plow drivers have been out since early morning clearing roads and parking lots. 

David Potocki, who was clearing snow, says he can never really prepare for when the snow will hit in the winter months.

"You get days where you don't do nothing, and then you get days where, like today, it just started again," he said. "We've had some days where there ain't no snow, and then all of a sudden one day, it starts snowing really good."

Over at Adams Country Club, it might be surprising that groundskeepers maintain the course and its surroundings all year long.

Floyd Ruttan not only keeps track of the grounds in the spring and summer months, but the winter too, when he plows.

"It's a long, t tedious process. You've got a lot to do and a lot of trips back and forth. Your back gets sore, your neck gets sore from backing up and turning around and so on and so forth," said Floyd Ruttan, groundskeeper.

If you're wondering whether or not anyone hit the links while the weather was still warm -

"Actually, we did have one guy out here that's not supposed to be, but he was out here. He's a regular in the summertime," said Ruttan.

So, no matter where the snow is hitting, people are just trying to make the most of it until it warms up once again.
