NEW YORK (WWTI) — Heavy wind and snow is predicted across the state tonight and tomorrow. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is urging New Yorkers to use caution as an extreme weather system is predicted to move through the state starting in the evening on November 2, and expected to continue through November 3.

According to the National Weather Service, the system is predicted to bring up to 10 inches of snow in Upstate New York, accompanied by wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour.

Cuomo urged that those venturing out in the next two days, to use extra caution.

“The weather system approaching the state tonight will bring a widespread, moderate snowfall to most upstate locations and wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour,” stated Cuomo. “Conditions could become dangerous, as slippery surfaces, reduced visibility, and gusting winds will cause the potential for power outages and difficult travel.”
