Lake Snows Hit Buffalo and Areas South

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – The Buffalo area was battered by a lake effect snow storm Tuesday.

Several inches of snow fell across the city and its immediate suburbs during the late morning and early afternoon hours. The heavy snow was responsible for several minor accidents.

Though it was not necessarily weather-related, a Rural Metro ambulance responding to a call plowed into a storefront at Elmwood Avenue at West Utica Street. Rural Metro spokesman Jay Smith said the ambulance driver swerved to avoid a fire truck approaching the same intersection.

No one was injured.

All lake effect snow advisories have been lifted for the region. But areas well south of Buffalo could see two to four inches of snow on Wednesday.

The coldest weather of the winter season will move into the region late Wednesday. High temperatures Thursday will be in the mid teens with wind chills around zero.
