Winter Storm On The WayPosted: Updated:
A major storm is expected to hit parts of the Northeast hard over the next couple of days, but the north country should be spared the worst of it.
That doesn't mean we won't get snow. There's a winter weather advisory for Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties that starts at 4 p.m. Wednesday and lasts until 7 p.m. Thursday.
An advisory for Jefferson and Lewis counties starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday and ends at 5 a.m. Saturday.
Snow could make roads slippery and reduce visibility.
Jefferson and Lewis counties could see 10 to 18 inches of snow, but that's over more than two days. Most of the snow is expected to fall Thursday and Thursday night.
St. Lawrence County will see less snow, from 3 to 6 inches, most of which will fall Wednesday evening and overnight into Thursday.
Highs will be in the low- to mid-30s on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
It will be in the mid- to upper-30s on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. There's a chance of snow Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, with partly sunny skies for Sunday.
