Snow showers are in the forecast for Orleans County on Tuesday and Wednesday, when the high temperatures are forecast for 38 on Tuesday and 37 on Wednesday.

The light snowfall is a contrast to other counties in Western New York that could get more than a foot of snow.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a winter storm warning from 1 a.m. Tuesday to 1 p.m. Wednesday for southern Erie, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties, which could get 8 to 15 inches of snow. In Wyoming County, 4 to 8 inches of snow is expected, the National Weather Service said.

In Orleans, it will be mostly sunny with a high of 40 on Thursday, followed by a chance of rain and a high of 40 on Friday.

Saturday there is a chance of showers with a high near 43.
