Forecasters are calling for a foot or more of snow from a winter storm that's expected to hit the North Country tonight.

The National Weather Service in Burlington has issued a winter storm warning from 7 p.m. this evening to 7 a.m. Friday. Ten to 15 inches of snow is expected.

In a statement, the weather service said snow will begin across the region late this evening and become heavy during the pre-dawn hours on Thursday. Heavy snow is expected during the day Thursday, becoming lighter Thursday night and ending Friday morning.

Winds from the northeast at 10 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 35 mph, were also expected.

Motorists were advised to take caution as visibility could be reduced to as low as a quarter mile due to heavy and blowing snow.

Elsewhere around the state, forecasters were predicting snow, sleet and freezing rain.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for central and western New York, where eight to 16 inches of snow was expected.
