Winter in April: Heavy Snow Heads for Western NY
Forecasters say some trees and power lines could be dragged down by heavy, wet snow expected to pile up as much as a foot deep in parts of western New York by Tuesday morning.
Shawn Smith of the National Weather Service in Buffalo says a storm moving up the East Coast will bring snow to western New York throughout the day Monday. By the time it peters out Tuesday, there may be 7 to 14 inches of snow in higher elevations of western New York, 5 to 9 inches in Buffalo, and 3 to 5 inches in Rochester.
Eastern and northern New York are expected to get rain, although there may be some snow in the northern Adirondack Mountains. A flood watch is in effect for the Hudson Valley.
