Snow and Sleet Create Dangerous Travel Conditions

Posted:
The snow and sleet create dangerous traveling conditions in the southern tier.

The stormy weather was predicted as a winter weather advisory went into effect this afternoon and runs through tomorrow morning at 7

And although there wasn't much in accumulation, the snow, sleet and freezing rain did create hazardous conditions on the roadways. The weather
was also bad enough to cancel evening classes at Binghamton University, SUNY Broome and Broome Tioga-Boces. And while most people are used to these conditions, they say it's still important to use caution on the roads.

"Right now it's a little treacherous, a little slippery with the ice and everything and mix of freezing rain and cold, but the plows are doing alright at this, but it's still pretty cold and slippery," said Craig Godspeed, Vestal.

Even though spring is still about 3 weeks away, warmer temperature are on tap for next week.
