Allegany and most surrounding counties under Winter Weather Advisory as projected snow totals increase

New National Weather Service projected snow totals, starting at 1PM today. Some areas also are projecting a glaze of ice during storm.

BREAKING: Allegany and all surrounding counties, other than Livingston, now are under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY, starting as early as 1PM today and continuing through various times Tuesday morning, due to some higher projected snow totals, potential icing in some areas, and wind gusts approaching 40MPH at times.

The US National Weather Service Buffalo NY reports that a “deep storm system over the upper Midwest today will spread a swath of steady…widespread precipitation across our forecast area this afternoon and tonight.”

It forecasts that although the “bulk of the precipitation will fall as rain over far western NY, a wintry mix with some snow will occur elsewhere,” with new projected snow totals, which have increased in many areas being shown on the map accompanying this story.
