Yet again, snow is in our weather forecast

More snow is a strong possibility tonight in the winter that refuses to quit, but it’s not clear how much will fall.

A storm system heading our way from the southern Plains will bring precipitation, according to the National Weather Service. That is a given.

How much and where is uncertain.

The weather service is forecasting 1 inch of snow in Buffalo.

The higher terrains of Cattaraugus, Allegany and Wyoming counties could see as much as 6 inches of snow.

How much of the precipitation will fall as rain and how much as snow will depend on a handful of factors, including temperature, said meteorologist Shawn Smith.

A mix of rain and snow is expected after 8 p.m. with the precipitation turning to all snow as the temperature drops near midnight, Smith said.

“But that could change as we learn more about the system,” he said.

A high of 37 degrees Fahrenheit is forecast for Saturday and a low of 29. Conditions turn around quickly by Monday, when a high of 52 and sun is expected.
