Snow falling in Southern Tier but metro area is spared

Nearly four inches of snow fell in Little Valley in Cattaraugus County as of 7 a.m. Sunday, the highest total in the region, but coverage was uneven elsewhere in southern Erie County and the Southern Tier.

Snow is continuing to fall in those areas, according to the National Weather Service, which forecasts another two to four inches of snow today and two to four inches tonight associated with cold winds on the backside of a storm in Canada.

For most of Erie County and Niagara County, conditions will be better.

The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high near 36, calmer winds and a slight chance of snow showers after 2 a.m.

After that, look forward to a warming trend.

“It looks to be warm and dry the day before and after Thanksgiving, pretty nice weather heading into the holiday,” said Jon Hitchcock, meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Cheektowaga.

Look for mostly sunny skies Wednesday and a high near 49. The temperature is expected to increase to as high as 55 on Thanksgiving.
