Hazardous Driving Conditions Ahead for Western New York


Saturday’s story will be freezing temperatures. The high will only be around 12 degrees this afternoon, before dropping back down to single digits for the Bills’ home playoff game tonight.

While the cold weather will be the story today, the snow will be the story early next week.

Temperatures will rise into the mid-20s on Sunday afternoon, but then all of Western New York will be hit by a massive winter storm that will dump heavy snowfall across all regions.

The winter storm watch issued early Friday morning was upgraded to a winter storm warning for all of western New York, including the city of Buffalo. It starts at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

12 to 18 inches of snow is expected with this winter storm system, which will track northeast Sunday evening. It’s not just heavy snow, but gusts of 45 mph will make driving conditions dangerous if not impossible for motorists.

If you have the ability to work from home on Mondays, it’s probably a good idea to do so. If you must travel on Monday, especially Monday morning, be extremely careful as conditions will be brutal for maneuvering and visibility. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw travel advisories for this storm.

The reason this snowstorm is more dangerous than it was a week and a half ago is because it is a general snowfall that will sweep across the entire region, as opposed to a band of lake effect snow that only affected one area at a time and was harder to identify its movement – with this we know that everyone will be getting heavy snow at around the exact same time.

WATCH: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the endless number of memes scattered across the internet, it’s hard to keep track. Just when you grasped the meaning of a hilarious meme, it has already become old news and been replaced by something equally enigmatic.

Stacker searched internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases such as know your meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean.
