Winter hits NYS with a vengeance

For those of us who havn't been out, there is freezing rain all over everything in NY state. I havn't been out of doors, but I did look out. Freeze is coating
all the branches, vehicles, etc. The step outside my door is slick with thick ice. I threw out some salt, going out later to chip the ice off, if I can. Powe winked out about 10 AM, for only an instant. Long enough to reboot my computer. I doubt I will go any where today. More rain over night, changing to snow. Lucky me, I have enough food and water stored in the house, and a couple backup heat sources.

...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST THIS EVENING...
LOW PRESSURE CENTERED OVER NORTHWEST PENNSYLVANIA THIS MORNING IS EXPECTED TO TRACK NORTHEASTWARD AND CONTINUE TO SPREAD FREEZING RAIN ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA THROUGH THE MORNING AND INTO THE EARLY AFTERNOON. THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE OF UP TO A HALF INCH OF ICE ACCUMULATION OR MORE OVER MUCH OF THE AREA...ESPECIALLY NORTH OF THE THRUWAY. THIS MAY BE ENOUGH TO CAUSE DOWNED TREE LIMBS AND POWER LINES.
AREAS SOUTH OF THE THRUWAY HAVE WARMED ABOVE FREEZING AND THE THREAT FOR ADDITIONAL FREEZING RAIN HAS ENDED...BUT POCKETS OF COLDER TEMPERATURES STILL EXISTS ESPECIALLY OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN...THEREFORE ADDITIONAL FREEZING RAIN IS LIKELY.
UNTREATED ROADS WILL BE VERY SLICK AND HAZARDOUS. DRIVE WITH EXTRA CAUTION AND ALLOW EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION.
MOST AREAS SHOULD SEE TEMPERATURES ABOVE FREEZING BEFORE NOON.
MUCH COLDER AIR IS EXPECTED FROM TONIGHT INTO MIDWEEK WITH LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS LIKELY. SINCE THERE MAY BE POWER OUTAGES FROM THIS ICE STORM PLEASE REMEMBER THAT DURING BUFFALO`S POWER OUTAGES IN THE OCTOBER STORM THAT A FEW PEOPLE DIED FROM CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING BECAUSE THEY RAN THEIR GENERATORS IN ENCLOSED INDOOR AREAS. EVEN RUNNING A GENERATOR IN AN ATTACHED GARAGE IS DANGEROUS! STAY TUNED TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO AND OTHER RADIO AND TV STATIONS FOR FURTHER DETAILS OR UPDATES.
