Hope you enjoyed the small stretch of record-warm temperatures we in had Central New York. We're about to be reminded what season it really is. Snow is on the way. How much depends on where you live.

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Warnings and Watches across parts of New York for "measurable snow," which looks to be staying south.

A strong storm system will bring accumulating snowfall to the region Monday night and Tuesday.

How Much Snow?

Heavy snow is expected along the New York/Pennsylvania border in the Twin Tiers and in the western Catskills. Snowfall rates could be as high as 3 inches per hour or more at times Monday Night into Tuesday morning.

A shift in the storm is taking the potential for any measurable snow out of the forecast for almost all of Central New York. Great news for those hoping for an early spring. However, any small change in the storm track could result in large changes to the snowfall forecast.

A 30-50 mile change in storm track being the difference between a couple inches of snow or 6+ inches.
