Winter Weather Advisories continue today for areas south of the city of Buffalo. While those locales will see the heaviest snow, Buffalo and its immediate suburbs will also contend with two to three inches of snow. Tony Ansuini of the National Weather Service says today's light winds and mild temperatures will be gone tomorrow. Lake effect snow is in the forecast for Wednesday through Thursday as drivers should expect areas of blowing snow. Temperatures will fall into the teens.


With heat index values expected to reach the mid-90's today, the National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for much of the region. Meteorologust Tony Ansuini says today's heat is the result of a weather pattern that has brought high temperatures and heavy humidity in recent weeks. He expects the trend to continue into September.

While spring officially arrives in the month of March, the continued presence of snow will make the region feel like it is winter in the coming weeks.  Snow accumulations ranging from four to 10 inches will pile around the area in the next 24 hours. To add to it, Tony Ansuni of the National Weather Service says another Nor'easter could bring more snow next week.

A widespread weather system is bringing snow to Western New York today. The heaviest of the snow is hitting Allegany County where several schools canceled classes. A winter storm warning is in effect until 4 a.m. Thursday for Allegany, Cattaraugus and Wyoming counties while the rest of the region is under a winter weather advisory. Tony Ansuini of the National Weather Service expects another bout of snow to arrive Friday.


Nearly four inches of snowfall was recorded at the Buffalo National Weather Service office overnight. With another inch or two of snow on the way, meteorologist Tony Ansuini says a winter weather advisory will continue until 1 p.m. today. Cold weather--wind will be in the single digits-- has accompanied today's precipitation. Ansuini says temperatures will move above freezing over the next two days before they plummet again. The cold spell could last to the middle of February.


An inch or two of new snow could impact Buffalo and the surrounding area today. That modest snow total, however, could make for treacherous driving conditions as strong winds whip up blowing snow later today. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Northern Erie, Niagara, Orleans and Genesee Counties. Additionally, a lake effect snow warning is in place for Southern Erie, Wyoming, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties.

A Winter Weather Advisory continues until 2 pm for Western New York as a wet and heavy April snow moves through the region. According to Tony Ansuini of the National Weather Service, the snowfall has been widespread with the heaviest snow hitting areas to the east and south of Buffalo. The winter feel should be short-lived as dry weather arrives this weekend.


While snow in January is typical for Western New York, the duration of this weekend's Lake Effect Snow Warning is unusually long. The warning, which began Thursday afternoon, continues through 7pm Sunday for Southern Erie, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and Wyoming Counties. A Lake Effect Snow Watch has been issued for Northern Erie and Genesee Counties for most of Saturday.


A Lake Effect Snow Warning has been issued for Erie and Genesee Counties, from 1 p.m. today through 1 a.m. Thursday. Tony Ansuini of the National Weather Service expects heavy snow and strong winds will make for a difficult afternoon commute.
