The weather service issued a wind advisory for Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Orleans and Chautauqua counties from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday.

A cold front associated with the storm system is forecast to cross the region from west to east starting late Saturday morning.
"A line of heavy showers and a few thunderstorms along the cold front will produce gusty winds, with a marginal risk of a few damaging wind gusts," according to weather service forecasters.
The passing cold front will cause temperatures to drop rapidly during the day Saturday.
The daily high temperature will probably come about midnight – in the low 60s.
It'll be close to 60 degrees by 7 a.m. and then will drop below 50 degrees by noon, below 40 degrees by 2 p.m. and down to the freezing point by 10 p.m., forecasts show.
