The Ithaca region is expected to get one to two inches of snow before a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain takes over, according to the National Weather Service. Here’s our earlier weather report from today; there’s no indication that there have been major changes to the forecast since then.

“Light snow will change to sleet and freezing rain today before plain rain today. Expect a wide range of conditions. Highs near freezing,” the Cornell Weather blog said on Twitter.
