Orleans County and Western New York should get the shovels and snowblowers ready.

The Buffalo area, Wyoming, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties will get a lot of snow in the next few days, with Jamestown getting perhaps up to 3 feet.

Orleans County won’t get that much – anywhere from 2 inches in western Orleans to 8 inches in the Kendall area. The snow will start Thursday evening in Orleans, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo.

Today, little to no snow accumulation is expected and there will be a high of 38.

Thursday there are snow showers expected after 7 a.m., with snow accumulation of less than a half inch. But Thursday night and Friday the snowfall could be heavy, the Weather Service said.
