Snow begins Wednesday morning
A Winter Storm Watch been posted for all of Western New York, except Allegany County for Wednesday into Thursday.
Lake effect snow is expected to start Wednesday morning and bring heavy snowfall from Buffalo to the Southtowns during the morning. This will have a high impact on Wednesday morning and afternoon’s commutes. The snow may ease back during the day. The snow band will slowly sink south on Thursday into ski country before returning Thursday night into early Friday. Because the snow will ease back during the day and because the snow band will move through a bit more quickly we have reduced amounts in the Buffalo area.
Snowfall totals from Wednesday and Thursday could be between 2-3″ for the northtowns 8-12” for the southtowns. There will be a lull in the snowfall on Saturday with more lake effect snows possible on Sunday.
