Lyons, N.Y. (WHAM) - A travel advisory has been issued for Wayne County from Friday evening until Saturday afternoon.

Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts issued the advisory, starting at 5 p.m. Friday. It will be lifted on Saturday at 4 p.m.

The advisory is a result of the National Weather Service’s Winter Storm Warning. This travel advisory does not restrict travel; it is a warning.

Freezing rain and sleet will likely make the roads slippery, especially from 5-8 p.m. Snow will begin falling around 8 p.m. and could lead to rapidly changing road conditions.

At 10 p.m. Friday, the travel advisory will be raised to a no unnecessary travel status. That status will remain in effect until 7 a.m. Saturday. This does not restrict travel either, but is issued as a warning of the dangerous conditions that could exist on the roads.

Significant amounts of snow will fall throughout parts of Wayne County overnight that could make travel dangerous.
