Snow makes its debut in Buffalo area for season

The Buffalo area saw its first coating of snow this season Monday night.

The Buffalo metropolitan area wasn’t slated for more than a total of an inch of snow by this morning.

But parts of areas to the south, particularly the Chautauqua Ridge and the Boston Hills area, were expecting between 3 and 5 inches of snow overnight, according to the National Weather Service.

Slippery pavement in some areas of Western New York caused a few cars to slide off some roads.

North French Road in Amherst was closed between Northpointe Parkway and Niagara Falls Boulevard at about 10:30 p.m. as crews worked to restore telephone lines after a car struck a pole on North French.

It was uncertain whether the crash was weather-related.

In the meantime, about 2,500 Hamburg residents were left in the cold and dark for at least part of the night following a power outage reported at about 9:40 p.m.

New York State Electric & Gas customers in the town and village of Hamburg were affected.

A handful of Orchard Park residents also lost power Monday night. The cause of the outage was not immediately known.
