BUFFALO, New York — The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of upstate New York ahead of a system that's expected to dump up to 10 inches of snow on some areas.
The warnings are in effect starting early Wednesday morning and continuing through Thursday morning from western New York to the Mohawk Valley, and from Wednesday morning through Thursday night across the Adirondacks.
Forecasters say snowfall totals are expected to range from five to 10 inches in the Buffalo area, with winds gusting to 35 mph later Wednesday. Other areas in the state's western half are expected to get four to eight inches of snow.
Albany and areas farther south in the Hudson Valley and Catskills are expected to get a mix of snow, rain and freezing rain.
