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.
Snow will start to accumulate late tonight 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.
