A cold front is dropping across the region, bringing rain that could turn into snow tonight, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo.

It won’t be a big snowfall, just a light accumulation in the lower elevations and an inch or two in the higher elevations.

“Temperatures rapidly falling below freezing behind this front will create a threat of black ice on untreated roads,” the Weather Service advised. “Motorists are advised to exercise caution as untreated roads and particularly bridges and overpasses may become very slick and icy with little to no warning.”

The weather advisory includes Orleans and 15 other counties.
