Another snowstorm has hit the region. The snow seemed to come out of nowhere about 6 p.m. and it’s been a steady onslaught since then. The area could get 6 inches of snow by morning.

The top photo shows the Albion Middle School at about 6:15 p.m., when the storm was just starting. The Vietnam War Memorial in front of the school felt the storm’s wrath.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory until 6 a.m. for Orleans and seven other Western and Central NY counties. The wet snow, sleet and freezing rain will make driving dangerous. The Weather Service urged people to “exercise extreme caution” if they are on the roads.
