What were Western New York's coldest towns?

It was unusual for the Southern Tier to be largely left out of a major lake-effect snowstorm.

Cities and towns there made up for it on the thermometer.

The coldest spots – double-digit minus air temperatures – were found primarily across Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties.

Ellicottville, Olean and Cattaraugus recorded temperatures of minus 14 degrees, according to National Weather Service reports.

The bulk of the lake-effect snowfall was found around metro Buffalo, including 20 inches at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, as of this morning, the weather service reported.
