Winter not gone yet; Central N.Y. to get socked

ALBANY (AP) – There’s just over three weeks before winter ends on the calendar, but upstate New York is still feeling the brunt of its frigid touch.

Central New York is preparing for another blast that could drop as much as a foot of snow by this morning. The National Weather Service says the region also will be hit with wind chills as low as 24 below zero, and wind gusts of to 30 mph will cause dangerous driving conditions.

The worst of the snow is expected to hit northern Madison, southern Oneida and northern Onondaga counties.

Elsewhere, it’s just going to be plain cold, with temperatures expected to plummet below zero in western New York, the Finger Lakes, the Catskill Mountains, with a wind chill of nearly 30 below in the Adirondacks.
