Elmira, N.Y. (WETM) – Winter Weather Advisory in effect until Wednesday evening for the Twin Tiers. Chance for stray lake-effect showers take us into the weekend. Details below:
Warmer air works into the region through the overnight. We hit our low early in the evening, then warm into the mid 30s to near 40 degrees through the overnight. Change in temperatures allowing for a change of precipitation. Scattered showers of a wintry mix to a cold rain through the evening and early overnight. Potential for ice, so still need to be careful when on the roads. Patchy drizzle or freezing drizzle around after midnight.
