CURRENT AND EARLY ALERTS: The WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES for Allegany and surrounding counties have or are coming to an end over the next several hours, but forecasters now are starting to focus on a possible repeat weather system, with higher snowfalls, for Friday afternoon and evening into Saturday.

The Advisories are continuing until 9AM for McKean County, Pa., and 1PM for Steuben County east as yesterday’s storm continues to move northeast.

Strong wind gusts will continue today, projecting to reach near 40MPH in the early afternoon in central Allegany County, NY.

Forecasters now say there is potential for a similar storm pattern for Friday afternoon and evening into Saturday, but with the possibility of greater snowfall as another complex weather system brings snow, freezing rain, sleet and rain into the region.
