Roads wet, slick in spots for morning commute

Roads are wet - slick in some spots - as snow continues to fall across Western New York.

Some accidents have been reported in the region, including a pickup in a ditch along the southbound Interstate 190 on Grand Island, north of the Whitehaven Road exit.

The snow is expected to continue through the morning. The National Weather Service has seven of eight counties (Allegany County is excluded) under a winter weather advisory until 2 p.m.

An additional 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation is expected today, the weather service said. Today's high temperatures won't escape the 30s.

Flood watch

A flood watch remains in effect through Saturday afternoon in northern Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee and Wyoming counties, the weather service said.

Rain record set

The daily rainfall record for April 6 was broken at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, the weather service said. The daily total reached 1.58 inches, surpassing the long-standing record of 1.22 inches set in 1886.
