A Winter storm warning is in effect for Wyoming County, southern Erie County, and western Southern Tier. The National Weather Service is forecasting snow accumulations of five to 10 inches in these areas, with wind gusts of up to 45 mph. The windy conditions will cause visibility to be reduced to zero. Regardless of elevation, be prepared for the worst. This Winter storm warning is for the entire region, not just your town. In addition to Wyoming County, Genesee, Livingston, and Orleans counties are also under Winter weather advisories. The snow is expected to begin falling this afternoon, and then turn into a steady blanket by Saturday morning. As the day progresses, several inches of wet snow will fall in these areas. Higher terrains will see the most snowfall. As a result, many areas will be affected by the forecasted accumulations. The forecasted accumulations vary from two to four inches overnight.

In the warned areas, a snowfall of four to six inches is possible. Since the snow is blown by strong winds, visibility could be limited for a short period. A Winter storm warning covers the region between seven and six p.m. on Saturday. A separate Winter weather advisory is in effect for Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, and Ontario counties.
