Cortland is expected to receive just over an inch of snow, though a thin coating of ice will accumulate on top of the sleet late tonight into Tuesday morning, according to the latest briefing from the National Weather Service in Binghamton.

A combination of ice and gusty winds could lead to very hazardous travel conditions. Temperatures will remain in the upper 20s through the overnight hours.

Forecasters say drivers should be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities.
