A little snow Tuesday -- then a lot more Wednesday

If you like snow, this is your week. It’s in the forecast every day through next Sunday.

Mostly it will be like today. A fast-moving system is giving Western New York a quick burst of snow that should be over between 6 and 8 a.m., accumulating just a couple of inches at most, the National Weather Service said.

Roads were snow-covered and slippery this morning.

After that, it should be a quiet midwinter day, due to another fast-moving system. Forecasters said temperatures will top out in the mid-20s under mostly cloudy skies.

Then, we’re due for major snow.

A winter storm watch has been issued for Wyoming, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties and all of Central New York from 6 a.m. Wednesday to 4 a.m. Thursday. Six to 10 inches or more were projected.

“We’re expecting lighter amounts here in the Buffalo metro area,” National Weather Service meteorologist Aaron Reynolds said Monday evening, “in the 3 to 6-inch range, maybe more. With a lot of these synoptic storms, a track 10 miles to the east or west will make a difference. We’ll just have to watch where it goes.”

Temperatures are expected to stay seasonably chilly, with daytime highs in the mid 20s and overnight lows in the teens.
