Weather Channel Covers April Snow in Buffalo
The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore says covering a snowstorm in Buffalo had always been on his “bucket list” but I’m not so sure he was able to accomplish that. Yeah, it was snowing and he was in Buffalo, but was this the kind of storm he had in mind? I think he’ll have to wait for another time.
Although areas well to the south of Buffalo and especially the higher elevations got up to a foot of snow, the heavy snow predictions for the metro area fizzled out. The National Weather Service has cancelled its Winter Storm Warning for Erie, Genesee, Niagara and Orleans counties. The Winter Storm Warning for southern Erie, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties continues until 7 AM on Tuesday.
Cantore covered the storm for the Weather Channel and NBC from a location in Orchard Park across from the Orchard Park Country Club. I thought his coverage was very fair. He mentioned that spring basically began here in this area back in February and that we had that stretch of record high temperatures in March. He had a couple of visitors during his cut-ins today – check out the video. Western New York makes a very good impression to a world-wide audience.
