Winter Storm Warning Cancelled for Western NY, But The Damage Remains

JAMESTOWN – Many woke up in the early morning hours of Friday to the sound of wind howling, trees falling, and no power.
As advertised, that impressive Low pressure area swept across the Northeast last night and early Friday morning, bringing with it that wet and hefty “heart attack” snow and gusty winds.
The good news, is the storm has moved off to our east, and the Winter Storm Watch has been dropped for the entire region.
However, the storm left behind some impressive snowfall totals, broken and uprooted trees, and widespread power outages.
We had received a countless number of photos from our viewers, as well as storm totals from the National Weather Service.
The list of snow totals that came in from the Weather Service is insanely large, and would take an eternity to talk about each measurement, but here are just a few from around the Southern Tier:
*Forestville (CoCoRaHS): 22.0”
*Perrysburg (weather observer): 21.0”
Dunkirk (weather observer): 18.0”
Fredonia (CoCoRaHS): 16.0”
Silver Creek (weather observer): 14.3”
Jamestown (measurement taken near our studio): 12.0”
Ripley (broadcast media): 12.0”
Things have really quieted down for this afternoon, but still do expect a few light snow flurries throughout the day, which won’t really accumulate.
A few more light snow showers will be in the cards for Saturday, before we dry out for the second half of the weekend, into early next week.
