Cameron is expecting a "miserable" day for April on Sunday, with temperatures in the 30s, rain, drizzle, and an icy mix that could include sleet and perhaps even freezing rain. The rain and freezing rain will come later.

Combine the ice accumulations with gusty northeast winds to 60 km/h and we may see widespread power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines, the federal agency is warning. One to 3 inches of snow and sleet are expected in Western New York, and up to 5 inches in the Adirondacks.

Sunday night is expected to have near-freezing temperatures and an 80 percent chance of precipitation, with the possibility of mixed freezing rain between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m.
