I sure hope they are right. I am a huge fan of snow and although it may cause a few headaches on the roads, Western New York could use some snow. I love to snowmobile and it has been a couple years since we have had any really good conditions. Perhaps after tonight and tomorrow we will be able to get the sleds out??The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning that is expected to drop 8-16′ of new snow for us by tomorrow night. True, the trails are pretty wet and may not open right away even if we do get some snow. However, it’s a good start and the ski resorts won’t complain either. There are parts of the economy that suffer from a mild/snow less winter.

Be safe on the roads over the next 36 hours. It sounds like things could get tricky especially from Buffalo to the south.

WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 1 PM EST THURSDAY… * LOCATIONS…THE NIAGARA FRONTIER…GENESEE VALLEY AND FINGER LAKES. * TIMING…LATE THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY THURSDAY AFTERNOON. * HAZARDS…HEAVY SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW. * ACCUMULATIONS…AN INCH OR LESS THIS AFTERNOON…6 TO 12 INCHES TONIGHT…AND 1 TO 3 INCHES THURSDAY…LEADING TO STORM TOTALS OF 8 TO 16 INCHES. * WINDS…NORTHEAST 20 TO 30 MPH. * VISIBILITIES…AS LOW AS A QUARTER MILE AT TIMES. * IMPACTS…HEAVY SNOW ALONG WITH BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW WILL PRODUCE VERY DIFFICULT TRAVEL CONDITIONS. SNOWFALL RATES OF 2 INCHES PER HOUR OVERNIGHT WILL MAINTAIN SNOW COVERED ROADS AND VERY POOR VISIBILITY.
