The National Weather Service downgraded the blizzard warning to a winter weather advisory a little after 9 p.m.

Orleans and northern Erie, Niagara and Genesee counties are under the winter weather advisory until 8 a.m. on Thursday. The area could get another 1 to 3 inches of snow overnight with temperatures dropping to 8 degrees.

The Buffalo Niagara International Airport recorded 13.0 inches of snow in about a 12-hour time frame today. That shattered the previous March 12 snowfall record of 7.3 inches, set in 1959, according to The Buffalo News.
