Here are some predictions on how much snow we are going to get in Western New York over the next four days.

It looks like most models are calling for at least two feet of snow in and around the City of Buffalo.

The Southern Tier has already seen plenty of snow from this system. Last night in Boston, there was over 5 inches of snow.

Most of Western New York is under a Winter Storm Watch starting at 7 pm tonight and going until 7 pm on Sunday. The Governor of New York has declared a state of emergency for the area and Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz has recommended that schools close and that businesses that can have their employees work from home do so.

This storm is shaping up to be a massive one and it might be best to ride out the storm at home if possible.
