Winter storm could bring 5-10 inches of snow
The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a winter storm watch from Thursday evening to Friday evening, when 5 to 10 inches of snow could fall in Orleans and other Western New York counties.
The Weather Service said difficult travel conditions are possible, including during the morning commute on Friday.
“Gusty winds and wet heavy snow could cause tree branches to fall,” the Weather Service said. “Significant reductions in visibility are possible. Forecast confidence is lower than normal as temperatures will be near the freezing mark and a wide range of snowfall totals remains possible.”
