Severe Winter Weather

A *WINTER STORM WARNING* is in effect for southern Franklin, western Clinton, and western Essex counties in New York until 2 PM on Sunday.

A *WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY* is in effect for portions of the Adirondacks, the northern half of Vermont, and northern half of New Hampshire until 2 PM on Sunday.

A *FLOOD WATCH* is in effect for the southern half of Vermont through Monday afternoon.

A messy storm will bring a variety of precipitation into Sunday morning, and what you'll get will depend on where you live:

The Adirondacks can expect 4 to 8 inches of wet snow, mixed with sleet, by midday Sunday.  The warning area may receive more than 8 inches in spots.  The Champlain Valley and north/central Vermont can expect 2 to 6 inches of snow, sleet and freezing rain, before changing to rain early Sunday morning.  Southern Vermont will have rain, though there may be brief periods of mixed precipitation.  Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are likely, with the possibility of flooding, especially with potential ice jams in rivers.

Morning rain or mixed precipitation will taper to scattered showers by Sunday afternoon, though patchy freezing drizzle is possible near the Canadian border.  Stay tuned to Channel 3 for the latest in this storm.
