The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 6 p.m. today until 7 a.m. Friday with 3 to 5 inches of snow expected in Orleans, Monroe, Wayne and Ontario counties.

Winds gusting as high as 35 mph will produce blowing and drifting snow, the National Weather Service.

“Plan on snow-covered and slippery road conditions,” the Weather Service said. “Areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous conditions could impact the early morning commute on Friday.”

Today is forecast for the high of 19 with an overnight low of 12 degrees. The high on Friday in Orleans County will be near 17, with a high of 18 on Saturday.
