New York Governor Kathy Hochul has advised people across the state to prepare for this massive winter storm that is set to move across the state this weekend. Parts of the state could be under a foot of snow that will make travel very hazardous this weekend.

The New York State Department of Transportation getting ready for the storm. They are expected to have over 1700 plows on the roads this weekend.

Besides snow, some areas will see a wintery mix of ice and sleet that could cause very slippery road conditions. It looks like Western New York is just going to get the edge fo this storm and the winter weather advisories are in place starting around 3 pm this afternoon.

  In Central New York, Winter storm warnings and advisories are in place until Saturday afternoon. More snow is expected in the eastern part of Central New York


The good news is that this storm system should be out of the state by Saturday night and some sunshine is in the forecast for Sunday.
