Higher snow totals projected for Allegany as Nor’easter moves in

BREAKING: Allegany County, NY, particularly in its northeast sector, now is projected to have significantly higher snow totals than indicated this morning as a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect from 6AM tomorrow until 6AM Wednesday.

Forecasts reversed again tonight and show from four-to-six inches of precipitation in much of the county, with as much as seven in the northeast corner and similar depths flowing over into Steuben County at their borders.

A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for Eastern and Central New York counties, as shown on our National Weather Service (NWS) inset in the upper left of the graphic accompanying this story, with 12-to-18 inches forecast, and over two feet in the eastern part of the state.

Wind gusts are expected to reach as high as 35MPH during much of the daylight hours, with blowing snow, slippery roads and poor visibility creating difficult travel conditions, including during both the morning and evening commutes.

Lesser snowfall is projected south of the border in Pennsylvania.
