Another wave of wintry weather is heading to Western New York, and it could cause some issues if you have to travel Thursday Evening. Check out the video above for the latest details from the 7 First Alert Weather Team:

- The wind won't be your best friend today. Winds towards the shores of Lake Erie and Ontario will be sustained at 30 mph, gusting up to 45mph. A little less once you head inland. This will keep wind chills below zero in many spots.

- Arctic front will move through Thursday afternoon for Niagara and Orleans County. Between 5-7pm for the metro area and Southtowns and between 8-11pm for the Southern Tier. The cold front will provide a quick burst of snow for much of the area, starting in the Northtowns first. Expect 2-4" as an average across WNY for everyone. 3-5" in the Southern Tier.

- This will drop temperatures even further from the teens into the single digits. Some places will be walking out to temperatures below 0F Friday morning.  

-Friday, the band of snow will be south of Buffalo into ski country. Again, can't rule out a few flakes for the metro area and Northtowns.
