The Corning-Elmira area will be on ...
The Corning-Elmira area will be on the fringe of the nor'easter moving up the East Coast, but will likely get 2 to 4 inches of snow Thursday, said Chip Maxham, meteorologist for the WETM Channel 18 News Storm Team.
Maxham says the track of the nor'easter has been difficult to project, so snowfall totals are hard to predict.
"But I'm fairly confident we'll see some snow," Maxham said.
Much heavier snowfall is expected east of Binghamton, but Maxham says his "best guess" is 2 to 4 inches locally.
Snow showers will likely begin around 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. Thursday, and continue throughout the day, he said.

A storm could drop about eight inches of snow Wednesday and Thursday in the Corning area, and nearly a foot in some parts of Steuben County, according to Chip Maxham, chief meteorologist for the WETM Channel 18 News Storm Team.
The storm will be followed by a blast of bitter cold, with subzero temperatures Thursday and Friday nights, Maxham said.
The snow should begin falling late Wednesday, he said.
"We'll have snow picking up late in the afternoon and evening, and it looks like we'll see some steadier snow Wednesday night into Thursday," Maxham said.
"It will pretty much snow most of the day Thursday, and it'll finally start tapering off Thursday evening."
Maxham predicts the Corning area will get at least six inches, and likely more.
"It's hard to pinpoint an absolute number, but I would say in the neighborhood of eight inches," he said.
