The National Weather Service is forecasting 6 to 10 inches of snow today through Tuesday for Orleans County and Western New York.

A winter storm warning is in effect through 6 a.m. Tuesday. The Weather Service said the snow will be most intense in Niagara Frontier with the greatest accumulations expected inland from the Buffalo metro area.

Conditions will deteriorate this afternoon and evening as snowfall rates increase and temperatures begin to drop, the Weather Service said.

Since 1935, the B.L. 60 Pounder British field gun has been the centerpiece of the World War I memorial in Medina.
