OSWEGO, N.Y.– Low temperatures are continuing to sweep the area, putting an end to the mild Fall.
All of Western New York and parts of Central New York were under flood watches and warnings this past week. Flash freezes in Jefferson and Oswego County are a growing concern as snow shows up in the forecast along with dropping temperatures.
Forecasters at the National Weather Service said “a flash freeze is possible, meaning wet road surfaces may quickly turn to black ice,” and potential for snow and ice may result in dangerous travel conditions.
Accuweather.com had issued a Wind Advisory along the Lake Ontario shoreline this past week, and now warns that progressively colder air will unleash rounds of lake-effect snow from the Upper Midwest to the interior Northeast next week. Travel could be difficult for students leaving the Oswego campus to go home for Thanksgiving.
