Town of Maine, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Winter is more than half over, but that doesn't mean it's getting any milder.

The Binghamton area is expecting to see more than one foot of snow.

The National Weather Service says some could see up to 14 inches.

"I think the biggest impact is going to be late tonight and early tomorrow morning when you're waking up. We believe it's going to be coming down really hard," Dave Nicosia with the National Weather Service said.

The snowfall rates could be as high as one to two inches an hour.

The New York State Department of Transportation will have all hands and plow trucks on deck. In just one of its salt barns the DOT has 3,000 tons of salt ready to load onto trucks.

"It's going to continue snowing for most of the day but we think the highest accumulations, again late tonight into the sunrise," Nicosia said.

The National Weather Service says it's been tracking this storm for about a week and says it's been fairly consistent.

The National Weather Service and DOT cautions people to allow extra time when traveling the roadways.

So far this winter, more than 56 inches of snow has fallen, which is already 20 inches more than last year.
