According to the National Weather Service, the Winter Weather Advisory has been upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning and is in effect from 1 am Tuesday to 5 pm Wednesday for Southern Erie, Chautauqua, and Cattaraugus counties.

That's not to say Buffalo and areas north won't get snow, because they will. Right now, anywhere from 2-3 inches could fall in Buffalo and surrounding suburbs, with 4-6 inches possible just south of the city. Areas north should see 1-2 inches of heavy wet snow. The heaviest snow will be in the southern tier.

Anywhere from 6-14 inches could fall, depending on where you live south of Buffalo and the southern tier!

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Wyoming County from 1 pm Tuesday to 1 pm Wednesday.

As always, take it slow if you're traveling. It will be breezy too, so visibility will be low. We're Western New Yorkers, however, so we've handled this a time or two.
