The warning is for all of Western New York. It goes until 3 pm on Sunday for Niagara County and until 7 am Monday for Erie County,

1-3 feet of snow is possible, depending on where you reside. Wind gusts and heavy effect snow will make travel difficult to impossible on Saturday and Sunday. Whiteout conditions and drifting snow will cause dangerous driving conditions.

Blizzard conditions are possible. Travel is being strongly discouraged.

A state of emergency has been declared by Governor Kathy Hochul.

It’s still unclear where this lake effect band of snow is for the Buffalo Bills playoff game vs the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday but we know it will at least be close to Orchard Park, if not over the town by kickoff.

If you don’t have to be anywhere this weekend, do not travel. The National Weather Service is high discouraging unnecessary travel at this time.

Hopefully not many people will lose power with the high winds.
