A mixture of weather Wednesday for Allegany and surrounding counties, some alerts issued

BREAKING: A mixture of potentially hazardous travel is being forecast for Allegany and surrounding counties tomorrow, with timing and the amount of accumulating snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain varying, depending on location.

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Potter County, Pa., east, with a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for McKean County west.

The map at the top, from the National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Prediction Center, shows the pattern for the day, with snow forecasts for different time frames for Steuben County east, from the NWS at Binghamton, appearing in the lower left, and for neighboring Pennsylvania counties, from the NWS at State College, Pa., in the lower right.

The NWS at Buffalo hasn’t yet issued a map of snow forecasts for tomorrow at this writing, with those for today still being posted for precipitation to the west and in the North Country.

In Allegany County, it currently appears that precipitation will start as snow, turn to sleet, then rain, and back to accumulating snow, again depending on the area, with wind gusts both today and tomorrow being in excess of 30MPH.

Snow and ice forecasts, together with timing, for specific areas are available through the Hourly Weather Forecasts appearing in the lower right side of local NWS weather pages and on NWS forecast center winter weather pages.
