BUFFALO, NY - The National Weather Service has cancelled the Winter Weather Advisory for all of WNY.

The first part of the storm produced several inches of snow in the S. Tier on Tuesday morning.  Here are some totals from the first part of the storm.

   PERRYSBURG              4"  
   RANDOLPH                 4"

   PORTAGEVILLE          4"
   WARSAW                   2"


Part two of the storm reached WNY late Tuesday evening bringing 3-5" of snow to areas from Buffalo northward to Lake Ontario.  Milder air moved in across the S. Tier creating sleet and freezing rain producing an icy glaze on powerlines, cars and roadways.  Gusty northeast winds up to 35mph have combined with the snow & sleet to create blowing and drifting conditions. 

Here are some totals from Wednesday morning.

Depew              5"   Snow/Sleet

Niagara Falls     4"
Elma                  4"

A dry slot in the center of the storm will cause the snow/sleet/ice to diminish this morning before the wind changes direction and the second part of the storm crosses the region later today.

The storm continued to move across WNY Wednesday evening with conditions changing throughout the night.
