ALBION – Several inches of snow have fallen today in Orleans County, blanketing the local landscape in white. The top photo shows a Village of Albion plow truck headed down East Park Street at about 5 p.m.

There have been several car accidents. An Orleans County dispatcher said that none of accidents, including a rollover on Ridge Road in Gaines, resulted in serious injuries.

The steps at the Orleans County Courthouse are covered in snow late this afternoon.

The National Weather Service says more snow is on the way. It has issued a lake-effect advisory from midnight tonight until 7 p.m. Tuesday for Orleans County. The Weather Service says the Lake Ontario shoreline will be most impacted.

Another inch of snow could fall tonight, 2 to 4 inches on Monday, 2 to 4 inches on Monday night, an inch or less on Tuesday, and another inch or less Tuesday evening.

Traffic makes its way on Main Street in Albion while snow falls.
