After several days of nice weather this week, we will jump back into reality as snow is in the forecast for parts of New York next week.


Some parts of Western New York could see as much as 4 inches of lake effect snow starting on Wednesday, November 1st and it looks like the chance of snow continues for the rest of the latter half of next week.

The good news is that most of the state won't be dealing with any snow next week. If fact, last week the National Weather Service put out their latest prediction for the Winter 2023-24 and they think due to the El Nino, that New York is looking at a milder and drier winter this year.  

This early snow will also put Buffalo in the early lead for the "Golden Snowball" award, which is given out to the New York town that gets the most snow during the winter. Last year, Buffalo took home the crown with 133.6 inches which doubled any other major town's total.

Syracuse has the 2nd most snow last year with 65.6 inches.
