NEWS 4's (WIVB-TV) Mike Cejka tells us while some areas, mainly across the hills could still expect 2-4″ Wednesday, snow should fade into the afternoon. But by Thursday winds will pick up with gusts to 35mph.  This will bring snow into our northern counties including Buffalo starting early in the day.  Amounts with this early burst on Thursday are looking very manageable and mostly in the 1-3″ range.  Friday could deliver a few show showers as another system crosses WNY.  This weekend temperatures will be below average for this time of year.  We are watching another window for snow into early next week with cold temperatures expected to continue.
