According to WGRZ's Patrick Hammer as of 5 am this morning it has been snowing non-stop here in Western New York for 30 straight hours.
Yes, we have seen snowfall for almost a day and a half! So when will it stop?
We are currently under a Winter Weather Warning until 10 am but later this afternoon we will see the current weather system move out of Western New York and that means the snow will be going East as well.
Well, the snow will stop, the cold will not. We are expecting to see high temperatures around 17 for Saturday and then a bit of a warm-up for Sunday and Monday with highs near 35.
Heading into next week the temperatures will be in the 30s with mostly cloudy skies. There is a chance the snow will be returning back to Western New York on Thursday. There will be more possible snow showers heading into next week as well. The temperatures will also be hovering in the lower and mid-30s for highs while the lows could be in the single digits.
January turned out to be one of the snowiest in Western New York history and it looks like February will have some decent snow totals as well.
Buffalo is currently in the lead for the Golden Snowball with just over 60 inches of snow. Rochester is in second place with around 44 inches. Syracuse is in 6th place overall.
