Several Crashes Reported in the Twin Tiers Due to Slippery Roads
The National Weather Service has a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for parts of the Twin Tiers including Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego and Tompkins Counties in New York and Susquehanna and Wayne Counties in Pennsylvania until 10 a.m. March 13.
Forecasters say the region could pick up additional snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches with totals of 3 to 5 inches.
Motorists are advised to plan on slippery road conditions, including during the morning commute.
Overnight and early in the morning, area police agencies reported numerous crashes, many with vehicles sliding into guide rails. New York State Police in Kirkwood observed that the wet snow also appeared to be freezing on harder, colder surfaces. In addition, officials say motorists should be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 511.
