Snow, rain, high-winds and flooding

By Bert Gambini


Buffalo, NY – Snow, rain, high-winds and flooding potential are all in the forecast as the Western New York weather picture is painted with the scenes of many seasons.

The forecast has taken a wintery twist. Areas south of Buffalo could see up to five inches of new snow.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory until 10 o'clock Friday night.

The entire region remains is under a flood watch. Flood warnings are posted for the Allegany River at Olean, Cattaraugus Creek at Gowanda, Cazanovia Creek near Ebenezer and the BuffaloCreek near Gardenville.

Kirk Apssel is a forecaster at the Buffalo Airport Station in Cheektowaga. Apssel said if these areas crest, the flooding shouldn't be too severe.

The metro Buffalo region should see a mix of rain and wet snow with winds gusting to 40 mph.
