A wintry mix is taking aim at the region Sunday, beginning with rain, freezing rain and sleet, then dumping a healthy amount of snow in the overnight hours.
Metro Buffalo and points north can expect 4 to 5 inches of snow overnight Sunday, with southern Erie County and the Southern Tier getting from 8 inches to a foot of snow, according to Shawn Smith of the National Weather Service in Cheektowaga. The day's high will reach 34 degrees.
The freezing rain earlier in the day will make travel "very slick," according to Smith.
The same storm system will be headed off to New England for the second round of snow of recent for that region.
Monday through Thursday will be mostly cloudy with the chance of snow showers and daytime highs ranging from 29 to 36 degrees.
The end of the week appears promising, with Friday expected to be partly sunny with a high of 33 degrees and Saturday, mostly sunny and the temperature topping out at 41 degrees.
