Winter returns, totals may approach 8 inches by afternoon; frigid air later this week

January's days might be numbered, but its up-and-down weather continues.

For the start of February, expect it to be more down.

Colder temperatures behind a passing front brought a round of snow to the Western New York region overnight.

Several inches had already fallen as of early today. Another couple of inches is possible this morning before snow starts tapering off by this afternoon.
