Genesee County is under a Winter Storm Warning beginning at 4 this afternoon.
The warning, which extends to most of Western New York, continues through tomorrow afternoon. Snowfall totals are forecasted at up to 16 inches.
"We are looking at wide spread accumulations of eight to 16-inches across Western New York," Meteorologist Jeff Wood from National Weather Service in Buffalo said. "For Genesee County in particular we are looking at really the mid- to upper-end of that range -- 12 to 16-inches."
Wood says the southern tier has a greater probability of heavy snow but the 12 to 16 inch range could fall anywhere in Western New York.
“The height of the storm for Genesee County is going to be the overnight hours," Wood said. "Snow will start later this afternoon and pick up through the evening. It’s really going to be cranking by late evening.”
