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

Hartford, Tolland, and Windham counties were just recently included in a "Winter Weather Advisory" as a cold front is expected to arrive Sunday night into Monday. For greater Concord, freezing rain is in the forecast before 9 a.m. Monday. "That colder air is on the move south and will be here in a matter of hours". Total ice accumulation is expected to be less than an inch.

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. Snow accumulation Sunday night should be less than a half inch.

Reuters reported that Myanmar has denied almost all allegations, saying it waged a legitimate counter-insurgency operation. Most Burmese consider the Rohingya as unwanted immigrants from Bangladesh, and the army refers to them as "Bengalis".

"Some areas inland from Lake Ontario may receive more than 20 mm of freezing rain, which would result in higher amounts of ice accretion especially if temperatures hover a couple degrees below zero".

Mix precipitation is expected to develop Saturday evening through at least Sunday morning.

Officials said drivers should slow down and be cautious on the slippery roads.
