Cold Today, Watching For A Midweek Storm System

JAMESTOWN – Temperatures will struggle to make it into the 20s today across much of the area with a few snow showers in the “potato flakes” variety through early afternoon.
However, we’re keeping an eye on a storm system that will pass to our Southeast Tuesday Night through Wednesday Night. Although we will be on the west side of the system, which is the “good” side, a widespread measurable and shoveabale snowfall will be likely across Western New York out of this storm.
We CANNOT give numbers, and place who gets what; it’s still too early to know how much snow will fall, and we’re not in that business of throwing out numbers when a storm is still in “VooDoo Country”.
