Snow showers headed into the Buffalo metro area tonight could coat the area with one to two inches overnight, according to the National Weather Service.
"It may not be a solid snow, more like snow showers tonight," said meteorologist Kirk Apffel.
Earlier, during the day, the metro area will see a some rain which will change to snow late tonight, Apffel said.
The highest elevations of southern Erie County, along with Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Wyoming counties, will be under a winter weather advisory and could get from four to seven inches of snow.
A strong cold front accompanying the snow could cause icy, slippery conditions on the roads, particularly Wednesday morning, Apffel said.
"Temperatures are going to drop very quickly by daybreak," he said.
The high for Wednesday won't be much higher than 20 degrees, and may even fall through the afternoon, Apffel said.
But by Thursday, temperatures will rise back up to the 30s and the next few days there will be a chance of rain and snow showers.
