Less than a day after temperatures climbed well into the 50s, the Cayuga County area is buried under several inches of snow with wind chills just above zero on Saturday.

Cayuga County Sheriff David Gould had issued a travel advisory around 6:30 a.m. Saturday but it was lifted five hours later, when the heaviest snowfall had cleared the area.

Cayuga County and much of the region was under a winter storm warning for most of the morning, a status that followed a day in which high temperatures and heavy rainfall produce flooding in several areas in the county. A flood watch for southern Cayuga County remained in effect until 7 p.m. Saturday.

According to the National Weather Service, snowfall in Auburn was measured at 10.4 inches on Saturday morning. Over the past 24 hours, the high temperature peaked at 57 degrees while the low was recorded at 11 degrees.

For the season, Auburn is now at 52.7 inches of snow, above the normal of 45.5 inches.

The Auburn Police Department said Saturday accidents had been consistent but contained to minor off-the-road mishaps.
