Wind Chill Advisory in effect for WNY

Jay Moran/WBFO

"Wind chills are running 20-to-25 below zero this morning, which is a very chilly start, even for us in Buffalo," meteorologist Kirk Apffel told  WBFO at 5 a.m. Don't expect much improvement as the day progresses. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory through 7 p.m.

Relief arrives Wednesday when temperatures rise into the forties.

The strong winds could produce blowing snow, especially in the open field areas of Western New York. Most of the region is dealing with significant snow piles.

"In general, it was a pretty uniform snow fall amount from this storm," Apffel exaplined.

"It was a large scale storm, not lake effect. Here at the Buffalo Airport we got 12.9 inches. The vast majority of the Buffalo Metro area got within a couple inches of a foot and maybe a litle bit more in the Southtowns and along the Chautauqua Ridge. And a little bit less in Niagara County."

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.

Jay joined Buffalo Toronto Public Media in 2008 and has been local host for NPR's "Morning Edition" ever since. In June, 2022, he was named one of the co-hosts of WBFO's "Buffalo, What's Next."
