A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to result in slippery travel conditions for the evening commute in parts of New York State.

The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories Tuesday from western New York to the Adirondacks and the Hudson Valley. The advisories are in effect until later Wednesday morning for some upstate areas.

There is a Winter Weather Advisory for Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, Southern Erie, Wyoming, McKean and Potter counties for Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Clouds will increase Wednesday morning and temperatures will rise into the 30s. You can expect snow showers mixing with sleet and freezing rain across the Southern Tier and into the deeper Southtowns during the day on Wednesday.

The wintry mix could provide a light coating of ice to area roads and sidewalks. Northern areas may see a few light snow showers during the evening with only minor accumulations.

The latest round of wintry weather arrives around two weeks after Lake Effect storms dumped several feet of snow on parts of Western New York.
