The winter weather bulletin will be effective on Sundays from 7 am to 3 pm
Buffalo, New York – Prof. Winter weather alert It was released to a portion of western New York.
The advisory was issued for the counties of Wyoming, Catarugus and Allegany. The Winter weather alert It will be in effect on Sundays from 7 am to 3 pm
The National Weather Service in Buffalo says mixed rainfall, including sleet, is expected, which can lead to slippery roads and limited visibility. Drivers should slow down and be careful.
The temperatures will be close to freezing on Sunday morning, so on Sunday it will start to rain as a mix of frost and snow around 8 am and then move to a winter mix during lunchtime. After that, the downpour turns into rain and remains as rain for the rest of the day. So, more rain than snow this time for western New York in general, with rain totals ranging from a quarter of an inch to an inch by the end of the day.
Temperatures will struggle to get out of the 30s on Sunday, especially in the northern regions. Places that see more snow in the morning can pick up 1 to 2 inches of slush. But with snow, sleet and rain all in the forecast for Sunday, this combination can lead to snow and / or slippery spots on the roads during the day.
Bear in mind that Sunday’s final snow totals can be deflected by any frost or mixed rain and some snow will melt as it descends. Minor road travel delays are also possible due to the heaviest rain.
