...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM SATURDAY TO 9 AM
EST SUNDAY...
* WHAT...Snow and sleet expected. Total snow accumulations of 2 to
  4 inches. Winds gusting as high as 50 mph Saturday night.
* WHERE...Niagara, Orleans, Monroe, Northern Erie, and Genesee
  counties.
* WHEN...From 8 AM Saturday to 9 AM EST Sunday.
* IMPACTS...Plan on snow covered and slippery road conditions with
  reduced visibility. Gusty winds could bring down tree branches
  and result in isolated power outages.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
Periods of snow will result in snow covered roads and limited
visibilities. Slow down and use caution while driving.

Deep low pressure will move across the region this weekend. This system will produce widespread accumulating snow on Saturday and strong winds Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Several inches of accumulation is expected Saturday and Sunday. Winds may gust to 50 mph later Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

Additional accumulations are expected Sunday and Sunday night as lake enhancement and lake effect snows get going.  Here are total snowfall projections via the National Weather Service in Buffalo

I plan on providing a storm update later this evening with my latest thoughts on timing and snowfall amounts.  See you then.
