Winter Weather Advisory in Effect

The winter weather advisory is now in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y.

Steady light freezing rain, freezing drizzle, and occasional sleet was winding down as of 11:30 p.m., an advisory said.

Another area of light showers of snow and sleet over central Pennsylvania should overspread the New York City metropolitan area, Long Island, and coastal Connecticut after midnight with additional accumulation of less than an inch expected.

This plus icing from the earlier freezing rain should make for continued hazardous travel conditions overnight.
