In mid-April, a winter weather alert is issued for Upstate NY

Central New York joins the growing list of Upstate regions that could get hit with sleet and freezing rain this weekend.

Just blame it on 'Murica.

Sleet and freezing rain will transition to snow by early Sunday, according to the NWS.

Light rain will change over to freezing rain Saturday evening before increasing in intensity overnight, Lincoln Park police said.

Periods of light freezing rain and sleet are expected across parts of central and western MA and ice accumulations of up to one-tenth of an inch are possible.

"Some uncertainty exists as to the time the precipitation switches to rain on Sunday".

As this air moves in, Cameron said, not only will temperatures drop, but rain showers will form as the heavier cold air undercuts the more buoyant warm air and lifts it.

Slippery roads, sidewalks and paved surfaces will make for very hard travel and greatly complicate any outdoor activities in affected areas.

Combine the ice accumulations with gusty northeast winds to 60 km/h and we may see widespread power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines, the federal agency is warning.
