Ho-hum. Another mixed bag of late-winter weather is moving into the area, a combination of snow, rain, ice and heavy winds, but with no major storm heading this way.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for some parts of Western New York and a hazardous weather outlook for the rest, from midday today to 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The worst weather is expected for the Southern Tier and the region’s most elevated areas, with forecasters calling for 3 to 5 inches of snow on the higher hilltops, with less snow the closer you are to Lake Erie.

“For people in Buffalo, we’re expecting less than an inch of snow,” National Weather Service meteorologist Shawn Smith said.

Forecasters also are calling for one or two tenths of an inch of ice accumulation in the Southern Tier, while some freezing rain and sleet are expected to fall on various parts of the region.
