While there are no watches or warnings in effect, the National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a "special statement" for the area:
An area of heavy snow impacting the region this afternoon through 4 pm; persistent moderate to heavy snow showers will continue. The heaviest snow will fall in Northern Erie, Wyoming and Genesee counties, including areas in and around the Buffalo Metro Area and the Buffalo Airport.
Snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour will reduce visibilities down as low as an eighth of a mile at times, so motorists should be cautious if traveling through this region this afternoon.
