‘Travel will be very difficult to impossible’

A winter storm is forecast to bring 10 to 14 inches of snow this weekend in Orleans County and all of Western New York.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning from 1 p.m. Saturday until 6 p.m. Sunday.

“Travel will be very difficult to impossible,” the Weather Service said. “Areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The cold wind chills as low as 15 below 0 could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.”

Saturday the high temperature will be 16, and Sunday it is forecast to reach a high of 11.
