Don't expect a lot of snow accumulation out of this one, in fact, we'll be facing a Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service, and not a Winter Storm alert.

Forecasters say snow will start off moderate to heavy on Wednesday afternoon and will only drop a couple of inches of snow. After midnight, warmer air from the south will move in and the snow will turn to sleet and freezing rain, and then to all rain for much of the night. The rain will switch back over to rain and snow on Thursday morning and taper off through the day. Total accumulations are expected to be 2 - 5 inches, according to the National Weather Service, with a layer of freezing rain.

The next good chance for precipitation is expected on Sunday in the form of a rain and snow mix.

...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM EST THIS EVENING... WHAT...Mixed precipitation. Total snow accumulations of 2 to 5 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze. Winds gusting as high as 35 mph. WHERE...Madison, Southern Oneida, Chenango and Otsego counties. WHEN...Until 10 PM EST this evening. IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute. ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Snow will mix with and change to freezing rain and sleet late this afternoon or early this evening, before changing to all rain overnight. Downslope winds off the Catskills may diminish snowfall amounts in lower elevation areas of Otsego and Delaware Counties. -National Weather Service
