The National Weather Service and other weather forecasting services are keeping a wary eye on a system that could cause hazardous driving and travel conditions around the Southern Tier of New York and Northern Tier of Pa. by Sunday.  The National Weather Service late Friday afternoon issued a Winter Storm Watch advisory effective from Sunday morning through Monday evening.

The Watch states that heavy mixed precipitation is possible with the potential of total snow accumulations of 8 to 14 inches of snow and ice accumulations of about one tenth of an inch.  The advisory includes details that state that a period of snow and sleet will move through the area Sunday morning before mixing with freezing rain in the afternoon and evening hours.  Another period of steady or even heavy snow is forecast for Sunday night into Monday.  Snowfall rates could reach two inches per hour at times especially Sunday night into Monday.  Temperatures will be in the mid 20's to low 30's through this time frame.
