There could be 1 – 2 inches of snow quickly dumped in the region, causing near-zero visibility, according to a Special Weather Statement issued by the weather service.

The storm is expected to make roads slippery, which could lead to accidents. The weather service is suggesting delaying travel until the storm passes.

Winds are expected to be up to 20 mph during the squall.

According to The Weather Channel, that should happen some time after midnight when the chance for precipitation drops to about 15 percent.

Monday morning in Ithaca, temperatures are expected to be in the upper teens, but wind chill will leave the area feeling about 5 degrees — which is where temperatures and wind chill will stay throughout the day, The Weather Channel says. 

The weather service says the windchill could drop to negative 5 degrees Monday night.

The chance for snow is expected to pick back up by 7 a.m. with a 40 to 50 percent chance for snow showers all day.
