It's been a downright awful winter, here in Buffalo and Western New York. There's no sugarcoating it, January 2021 rivals any other January for cold and snow, and is in the top seven snowiest Januarys in Buffalo's recorded history.
We've already seen two major snowstorms hit the City of Buffalo this winter season, with many other minor to moderate accumulations, and there's yet another winter storm heading for Western New York.
This isn't a run-of-the-mill winter storm though, as it will impact much of the Midwest and northeast from Tuesday through Friday.
It's called "Winter Storm Landon" and will arrive in Western New York this Wednesday, although the day to watch out for will be Thursday for us in Buffalo.
The National Weather Service just issued a "Winter Storm Watch," which goes into effect from Wednesday evening and goes through Friday afternoon. This will be for all of Western New York.
This storm will impact the region with rain and sleet to start, then all snow by early Thursday morning, and accumulations of 9 inches or more is likely.
The snowfall could produce greater amounts; we just don't know exactly because of the line of colder air and warmer air, and when it shifts to all snow for the region.
The National Weather Service states that travel could be difficult to impossible during the storm, especially hazardous for the morning and afternoon drive time.
WKBW shared the Monday morning Euro model, which shows a foot of snow or Buffalo.
We'll likely know more precisely on snowfall totals as we get closer to the storm, which arrives in just about 48 hours.
