The National Weather Service’s map shows a winter weather advisory covering most of the state.

There is a winter weather advisory in effect until midnight tonight in Orleans County and most of New York State.

It will be icy with periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain that will result in slippery roads and limited visibilities, the Weather Service said. Drivers are urged to slow down and use caution.

“Plan on slippery road conditions,” the Weather Service said. “This will especially be the case this evening.”
