First comes the soaking rain, then the mercury drop and, inevitably, snow.
That is, at least for the higher elevations in the region's Southern Tier – where, according to the National Weather Service's Buffalo Forecast Bureau, several inches of lake effect snow are likely to fall Saturday night into Sunday.
The weather service cautioned in a tweet that the snow will make for slippery driving conditions.
