Snow shifts to Southern Tier but deep freeze returns Monday

The latest snowstorm in the winter that wouldn’t quit left behind nearly 2 inches of snow this morning at the airport before it moved through metro Buffalo to the Southtowns and the Southern Tier, where residents will see a light, steady snow through the rest of the day.

The high temperature for the day is forecast to be 15 degrees, though without the kind of heavy winds that can make it feel a lot colder, said Bill Hibbert, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

The storm dumped 1.9 inches at the airport, though the Town of Boston got 4 inches and Kenmore got slightly less.

As snow continues to fall in the Southern Tier, it will make driving challenging on slippery roads, Hibbert said.

Tonight, the snow will let up but we’ll see temperatures near zero, or below, in the areas outside metro Buffalo as the deep freeze returns.

Monday, the highs will be in the low teens, and Monday night into Tuesday morning everyone will see temperatures below zero. That will leave us flirting with the record low temperatures for March 3 and March 4 of 3 degrees below zero.

Even meteorologists have had enough of this winter.

“Please, somebody, put on a different record,” Hibbert said.
