UPDATE: Travel advisories lifted in Cayuga, Onondaga counties

Winter Storm Warning Dec 1

The Cayuga County Sheriff's Office at about 12:30 p.m. lifted the travel advisory that was in effect since Sunday afternoon due to the winter weather. The advisory in Onondaga County expired at noon Monday.


Cayuga and Onondaga counties are under travel advisories urging residents to avoid driving.

A release Sunday from the Cayuga County Sheriff‘s Office advised drivers to use caution on roadways, which are slippery due to freezing rain and snow. The sheriff's office advisory is in effect "until further notice," according to the release that was issued at 1:30 p.m.

Onondaga County issued its advisory early Monday and said it was in effect through noon.

The National Weather Service put the southern end of Cayuga County under a winter storm warning Saturday and issued the same warning for the northern end of the county around 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Northern Cayuga County was previously under a winter weather advisory before its status was upgraded to a winter storm warning. NWS warns of "heavy mixed precipitation" until 7 p.m. Monday, with 6 to 12 inches of snow and 1/4 of an inch of ice accumulation. 

"The hazardous conditions will affect holiday travelers and will likely impact the morning commute," NWS said.
