CHENANGO COUNTY – According to the Chenango County Emergency Management Center, the county could receive between five to nine inches of snow and sleet between tonight and tomorrow morning.

Chenango County Emergency Management Director A. Wesley Jones said the biggest question for tonight's snow is, "How much mixed precipitation will we get?"

According to Jones, Chenango County may receive between five to nine inches of snow starting at 5 p.m. today and ending around 10 a.m. Friday morning.

"During that time, the county will likely receive periods of heavy snowfall, along with freezing rain or sleet," said Jones.

He said things may be especially difficult for those who have to travel in the morning, with road conditions that are icy with heavy snow.

"During the periods of heavy snow, there still a lot of trees with leaves on them that may fall over – taking out power lines," said Jones. "Those who have to drive in the upcoming weather should try to do so as calmly and safely as they can."

Safe driving

According to Norwich Fire Department Chief Jan Papelino, the key to staying safe in inclement weather conditions is a combination of driver safety skills and vehicle maintenance.

"The biggest and easiest thing people can do to promote a safer commute is to make sure your windshields and mirrors are completely clear of snow, and slow down," said Papelino.
