The impending Nor'easter that's expected to dump as much as two feet of snow on coastal areas from New Jersey up to Maine may only bring several inches of snow to Central New York, but area school districts are already making the decision to dismiss students early.
Ithaca, Trumansburg, Dryden, and Groton are among the districts that have announced they'll be closing school early. Whitney Point, Homer, Candor, and Spencer - Van Etten are also on the list.
The Finger Lakes region is under a winter storm warning from noon today until 7am Saturday. The heaviest snow will begin in mid-afternoon and continue into the evening hours, with an anticipated accumulation of 6-10 inches.
All flights between Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport for the remainder of Friday are canceled, and the early morning departure to Newark on Saturday has been canceled. The early evening departure to Detroit has been canceled, as well. Further flight delays or cancellations are likely. Check with airlines for rebooking options. Most airlines have waived rebooking fees for the weekend.
