Winter Weather Alert for Parts of New York State
It's been a relatively quiet past few days in terms of the weather across Western New York. The quiet time has been welcomed, after the historic lake effect snowstorm, which severely impacted just south of downtown Buffalo before Thanksgiving.
You may know, however, that more snow is on the way. The first round of it will be late on Saturday night and in to Sunday morning/afternoon.
A system will cut through Western New York, which will bring both snow showers and rain to the region. The system will bring snow and rain to much of the state
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for regions off Lake Ontario for Sunday, but the snow will fall in Western and Central New York as well.
The accumulations should be manageable but because of the tightrope temperatures, it's unclear exactly much mixed precipitation we will get.
While the first half of next week looks tame, there looks to be another winter-like system moving through by Thursday and into Friday, according to The Weather Channel.
More snow could be on the way for Friday and Saturday across Western New York next week, but it's still too early to tell exactly how much snow we will get.
Be careful driving on Sunday, especially in the morning. The roads could be slick and with it shifting to rain for many, it could be a slippery and slushy mess for a while.
We will wait and see if we get snow for the week of Christmas...
