More snow Friday into Saturday, with colder than normal temperatures in March

EARLY ALERT UPDATE: This morning’s forecast maps from the US National Weather Service Buffalo NY are showing from four-to-six inches of snow, primarily from late Friday afternoon into Saturday morning for much of Allegany County, NY, with colder temperatures than normal for the new month. Potential for wind gusts into the mid-30MPH range also may accompany the precipitation.

“A large storm system moving out of the Ohio valley on Friday will spread a mixed bag of precipitation across the region” during the described period, according to forecasters, with current unknowns not unlike those which already were experienced this week as temperatures fluctuated from area to area.

In the meantime, rain is forecast for today, with highs into the 50s, with cloudy skies under lower temperatures for Thursday.
