The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory through 7 AM Tuesday.

This mornings commute was incredibly bad. We saw many cars off the road and of course, many who were driving very aggressively putting us all at risk.

We're in a Winter Weather Advisory and could see up to 8 inches of snow in the Utica/Rome area. Expect reduced visibility with possible whiteout conditions due to gusty winds. Unfortunately for the snow lovers, it probably won't stick around with the rain on Wednesday. Temperatures could be cold enough for freezing rain or sleet resulting in slick roadways and cancellations.
