Major snowstorm heads east; winter storm warnings to start Tuesday night

A major winter storm is traveling across the U.S., blanketing the Midwest with snow before heading to our area.

The National Weather Service has called for a Winter Storm Warning to begin at 10 p.m. Tuesday, and last through 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Steady snow is expected to begin late Tuesday, between 10 p.m. and midnight. Heaviest snowfalls are expected between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Forecasters say during the heaviest periods of snow, anywhere between one and two inches of snow could come down.  Some forecasts call for more than a foot of snow to fall in the highest elevations of our region.

The winter storm warnings are for the entire Southern Tier, Finger Lakes and all of central New York.
