A blizzard warning has been cancelled for St. Lawrence County as the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from 3:30 a.m. through 8 p.m. tonight as more snow and wind are expected to create dangerous driving conditions.

Snow will continue this morning adding another two to five inches of snow to what has already fallen, the service says.

Snowfall could be extremely heavy at times this morning, NWS says. Occasional snow with areas of blowing and drifting snow this morning will taper off to scattered snow showers this afternoon.
