Areas of the Southern Tier from the Chautauqua Ridge south saw some snow accumulation overnight Wednesday and into Thursday.

One spotter in Frewsburg reported 3 inches of snow by Thursday morning. Additional accumulation was expected in those areas and others farther south and west.

“The west-northwest wind is blowing the snow south of Buffalo,” said David Thomas, National Weather Service meteorologist, who added that a few wet flakes might also mix in with rain around metro Buffalo.

Meanwhile, Cleveland and northeast Ohio were hammered when a lake-effect snowstorm dumped several inches overnight Wednesday, with as much as six more inches expected throughout Thursday, felling trees and causing power outages.
