The National Weather Service Office in Binghamton has issued a special weather statement. A strong cold front is expected to hit the region from late afternoon into the evening hours, bringing heavy rain that will quickly turn into heavy snow as temperatures drop below freezing. The snow squalls and high winds are expected to create dangerous travel conditions, with near-zero visibility and a potential flash freeze on road surfaces. The heavy snow squall is expected to reach the Finger Lakes, central southern tier of NY, and the Syracuse, Utica, and Rome areas between 5 and 7 pm.
