A Winter Storm Watch has been posted from Saturday afternoon through Monday afternoon.  The National Weather Service in Buffalo  says heavy snow is possible. Snow fall will begin as early as Saturday morning and snow will become heavy at times Saturday and Saturday evening, and into Sunday.

Snow will transition to Lake Effect snows Sunday evening and continue until Monday. More than seven inches of snow is possible.

The storm will also create gusty winds and bring in artic air. This will cause blowing and drifting snow. Watch for slippery road conditions and reduce visibility. 

It will be brutally cold, with wind chills well below zero.

On Monday the cold temperatures will continue with scattered snow showers. The high only expected to be 10-degrees.
