Special Weather Statement

Issued at 15:06 Tuesday 17 January 2017
Summary

Rain and freezing rain, occasionally mixed with sleet, is
currently occurring across the southern Adirondacks, the Lake
George Saratoga region, the Capital Region, eastern Catskills and
Helderbergs. Temperatures are expected to fall another couple of
degrees through the evening commute, allowing areas of freezing
rain to become more widespread.

Untreated ground surfaces which are currently wet are expected to
become ice covered during the evening commute. Motorists and
pedestrians are strongly advised to use extra caution if driving
or walking through this evening.

Bridges and elevated road surfaces, highway on and off ramps,
less traveled secondary roads, and also parking lots, sidewalks
and driveways will be particularly susceptible to ice formation
through early this evening.
