Snow in New York

Snow in New YorkTravelers to New York will witness some extreme weather conditions that may affect flights and could close down airports.

The National Weather Service has warned commuters and those traveling outside that a major storm is set to affect south-eastern New York today (28th January 2009).

Syracuse Hancock International Airport stated that during a normal season 111.9 inches of snow is expected but the snowfall expected today will turn this into an "abnormal" season, reports Syracuse.com.

Three inches of snow has already fallen in inland areas and travelers and backpackers may be wise to ensure they have booked a hostel and do not find themselves stranded as the storm hits.

A spokesperson for the Department of Transportation has reassured New York residents that highway workers are geared up to keep the transport networks running.

Paul Walker, a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather.com, also warned travelers to delay any journey until the situation eases.
