Another round of winter weather is headed our way.

A midseason storm system will begin impacting the region early Monday morning.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for a broad area in Central New York and Northern Pennsylvania, including Yates County, from 4 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a winter weather advisory for snow and ice accumulations for Monday.

Precipitation will initially fall in the form of snow before changing over to a mixture of freezing rain and sleet by mid to late morning. The potential exists for ice accumulations up to a tenth of an inch before precipitation changes over to all rain by early Tuesday morning.

Hazards inslude slick roads and dangerous travel as outside surfaces

become slick and ice covered.

Between 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected, followed by ice accumulations up to a tenth of an inch beginning in the early morning and continuing through late Monday afternoon.

Temperatures will be in the mid-20s early, gradually rising into the lower to middle 30s by late afternoon and evening.

Winds will be south 5 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.

Roads will become slick during the morning commute as light snow falls over the region. Roadways will remain slick during the afternoon as freezing rain and sleet results in a light coating of ice on area roads and sidewalks.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities. Use caution while driving.
