As the snow began to fall in Buffalo early Tuesday morning, it was mixed with enough freezing rain to have a major impact on the commute. Though crews were out overnight treating roads with salt, the precipitation made for a slow ride for most. While a Winter Weather Advisory is in place through 10 p.m., forecasters expect temperatures to warm Tuesday afternoon and for the precipitation to change to all rain for the drive home.

For Thursday's blast of winter weather, timing is everything.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for Buffalo and Northern Erie County until 7 p.m. Thursday.

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.

Total accumulation should range from three to six inches with areas in the southeast seeing close to six to ten inches.

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.

Concerns over freezing rain have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a winter weather advisory through 4 a.m. Saturday for Buffalo and much of the region. Meteorologist Bob Hamilton sees conditions changing throughout the weekend. "It looks like a higher chance for a white Christmas. Each day, it's looking better and better we're going to get fairly widespread snow later on Christmas Eve."

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.

After a lull Saturday, more lake effect snow is heading our way. Narrow bands of heavy lake snow will intensify Sunday afternoon.
