UPDATE: Heavy snow to fall through early Sunday morning

The Ithaca area is still on pace for as much as eight inches of snow, with more possible in higher elevations, according to updates from the National Weather Service.

Road conditions continued to get worse throughout the day, with many areas seeing steady snow through the afternoon and into Saturday evening. Ithaca Fire crews had to rescue an injured driver from a ditch of Coddington Road Saturday afternoon, after their pick-up truck went off the road. It was one of a number of accidents reported in the region Saturday.

Snowfall totals could top an inch per hour during the evening and overnight periods.

Portions of Seneca and Cayuga counties, and areas north of Ithaca, remain under a Winter Storm Warning until 7 a.m. Sunday. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect through the Southern Tier through Sunday morning.

In New York City, emergency service officials are urging motorists to stay off roads as the city braces for up to half a foot of snow. Nearly a foot of snow is expected in the Albany area.
