Oneonta stands to get its worst storm of the winter today with 10 to 15 inches of snow, if an approaching low pressure system stays on its present track, said David K. Mattice, a National Weather Service observer for Oneonta.
Winter weather warnings and travel advisories are in effect today and tonight for all of upstate New York, according to the National Weather Service in Albany.
The storm, headed this way and covering several states was in the southern part of the Ohio Valley Thursday night, said Mattice. It should arrive sometime this morning.
Higher elevations may get as much as 20 inches of snow.
Winds will generally be in the 10 to 15 mph range and statewide temperatures will stay in the high teens to low 20s.
State police have made arrangements to have troopers work extra hours or be called in to cope with emergencies and make sure people aren’t stranded, Sgt. Robert Parlett, state police spokesman, said.

DAVENPORT — Donald C. Haight, principal of Charlotte Valley Central School, Davenport, announced that final plans have been made for the open house program for the formal dedication of the newly constructed wing of the school.
The program will be held at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17 in the school gymnasium-auditorium.
The schedule for the program includes musical selections, the introduction of past principals and Board of Education members, with dedication ceremonies culminating in the cutting of the ribbon separating the main building from the new wing. Parents, teachers, and community residents are cordially invited to this program.
The erection of the new addition to the school completes plans which started in 1959-60. These plans became a reality on Aug. 29, 1961, when the school bond issue was approved. The actual construction of the building began in June 1962.
The new $200,000 building includes a large modern kitchen complete with stainless steel counters, sinks, steam tables, disposal, and serving centers.
The new addition will provide for more classroom space in both the elementary and secondary schools. It will also relieve the overcrowded cafeteria problem.
