BREAKING: From three-to-six inches of snow are being forecast for tomorrow into Saturday for Allegany County, NY, and surrounding areas, starting as snow in early afternoon and potentially turning to rain, sleet and freezing rain for the afternoon commute before turning back to the white stuff for the overnight hours.
More icing potential currently exists to the south in bordering Pennsylvania counties, with forecast snow amounts increasing as the storm moves to the northeast and temperatures become colder.
