The National Weather Service in Binghamton says it expects mixed precipitation with snow fall accumulations ranging from one to three inches in the Binghamton area to up to six inches in western NY.

The big story Thursday is the bitter cold that has invaded KAKEland.

At 6 a.m. Thursday, the temperature was 4 degrees with a wind chill of -17 degrees at Kansas City International Airport, the official weather reporting station for the metro.

FIRST ALERT WEATHER: National Weather Service issues Winter Weather Advisory for Wednesday

A cold front moved through the area this morning. Hopefully, you were able to get outside and enjoy since tomorrow the clouds will linger for most of the day, but we're also tracking some snow to rain just in time for your morning commute Thursday. Wind chills will be below zero all day Thursday, as well as most of Friday.

"Right now, temps are in the negative single digits to teens with wind chills between -25 deg to -5 deg.", the weather service said in an earlier tweet.

The best chance for some plowable snow is farther north, mainly along and north of the MA/NH border. Up to a half-inch of rain will be likely before the mixed precipitation changes to snow.

A midweek storm will bring a mix of rain, sleet and snow to the region. The big winners will be places like Lewistown and Sheridan, Wyo., which could see maybe 1 to 2 inches of snow.

This means there will be widespread slick roads during our early Friday morning drive. However, with clearing skies into Thursday morning, temperatures will fall even quicker, setting the stage for risky wind chills.

Crews in Madison have been plowing snow and spreading sand, but they said with the cold temperatures salt is not very effective.

Icing accumulations will be focused from Mansfield to Akron and points south, whereas the higher snowfall will be north of there.
