I just heard that the road conditions are deteriorating fast in and near the Penn Yan area. I'm not far from there and it is barely snowing here.

My Son is supposed to drive through Penn Yan in a few hours. Can anyone tell me if it's as bad as I heard it was? Apparently cars are sliding all over the place and my Daughter witnessed a collision when some guys car went out of control.

Cars are all over the road - 14 and North Ave area. Anything hilly will be icy. STAY HOME.

It is so weird. My folks live in Himrod and they said it's not doing anything there. Mom was surprised to hear about the roads in Penn Yan.

Maybe once the salt trucks get out there, it will get better. Flash Freeze...

And not a single blip about this on the news or weather page.
Anyone traveling through there would have no clue until they got there.

If it was a tornado, we'd be reading weather warnings. Why not do the same for isolated areas that are dangerous like this?

I don't even see it on the radar. Is it snow or just wet roads that froze into a sheet of ice?

The accident reports are still coming in!

I just looked in on the weather radar map. Penn Yan was struck by a little patch of lake effect snow from Lake Erie. It has moved North of us, near Rochester now. If it stays there, we should be OK soon.

This link should take you right to the radar for all of Western NY.

Wonderful! My son is driving here from Buffalo. I hope Monroe and Ontario Counties are salting before the storm gets there!

We went down 364 around 5:30 in a four wheel drive pick up, going very slowly, and nearly ended up in a ditch. We just got home and travel is still very slow and slippery. I have the scanner on and the road crews are out.

I've got the scanner on and they're forecasting nasty conditions later today. Wind gusts up to 45mph and snow. Stay safe everyone!

Thursday - Dec 11

I'm starting to hear reports of icy or slippery roads tonight. On the scanner, I heard an officer request that salt trucks be sent out. He said it's a sheet of ice and you can't even stand up. Sorry, I don't know where he was reporting from.

About an hour ago there was a two vehicle accident at Rt 54A and Assembly Ave. with two ambulances needed. Don't know if it was weather related.

Be careful out there!

I havn't heard any more reports lately - It must have been in isolated areas - so far.
