BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A Winter Storm Warning has been issued from tonight at 5pm until 5am Monday for Southern Erie, Wyoming, Chautauqua, and Cattaraugus Counties. Heavy snow and wind gusts up to 35 mph will make travel difficult to dangerous with low visibility and slippery roads. Deep snow with blowing and drifting snow will also make travel difficult to dangerous. Greatest snow accumulations will be along the Chautauqua and Wyoming County Ridges as well as the Boston Hills. The Buffalo Metro area and areas inland and away from hills and ridges will see less snow accumulation. This is especially the case close to the Lake Erie shoreline.

Today continue to be chilly with temperatures remaining near 40 with wind gusts near 30mph. Wind chills will be in the 20s with a rain/snow mix before winds turn to the northwest which will drop the temperatures and allow some lake effect snow to set up because of the connection to the upper lakes. Snow will start to accumulate late Saturday and measurable snow is expected over the higher hills south of Buffalo by late Sunday morning. Buffalo will see 1 to 2" of snow by Sunday morning. Temperatures Sunday struggle to get to the freezing mark and with a 15-20mph wind, wind chills will be in the teens! Monday is one more very cold day across WNY as temperatures remain in the 20s, nearly 20 degrees below average.
