UPDATE (5:40pm) by Geoff Redick:
The National Weather Service in Buffalo has upgraded the condition for tomorrow's winter blast to a Winter Storm Warning. 10-14 inches of snow are predicted for the Genesee County area in the overnight and morning hours from Tuesday to Wednesday, with additional, lesser amounts of accumulation during the daytime on Wednesday. Sustained winds of 15-25 miles per hour with gusts to 30 miles per hour are expected.
The warning is in effect from 10:00pm Tuesday through 10:00pm Wednesday.
Brace for another bout with winter.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a major winter storm for Western New York.
Meteorologist John Hitchcock is on duty right now at the National Weather Service in Buffalo:
"Right now it looks like the main part of this storm is going to arrive late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning with a gradual tapering off during the day on Wednesday. The snow could come down very heavily on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The Wednesday morning drive will be very difficult. Right now (12 Noon today) we are forecasting 8 to 16 inches of snowfall, which is a pretty wide range. We should be able to narrow that down as we get closer to the event," Hitchcock said.
A Winter Storm Watch has been posted until early Thursday morning.
