There's a lake effect snowstorm on the way for Western New York this Thursday evening and lasting into a good portion of Sunday.

Erie County will be under a Winter Storm Watch during that timeframe and it wouldn't be surprising if we see a Winter Storm Warning upgrade before the storm hits.

One thing to know about Buffalo is just how resilient the people in the community are. Most of us have lived through intense snowstorms, many off them the lake effect variety; which is much worse than general snowfall, because of how rapidly the snow can fall and cause almost impossible driving conditions.
