In New York:

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of upstate New York ahead of a system that's expected to dump up to 10 inches of snow on some areas.

The warnings are in effect starting early Wednesday morning and continuing through Thursday morning from western New York to the Mohawk Valley, and from Wednesday morning through Thursday night across the Adirondacks.

Forecasters say snowfall totals are expected to range from five to 10 inches in the Buffalo area, with winds gusting to 35 mph later Wednesday. Other areas in the state's western half are expected to get four to eight inches of snow.

Albany and areas farther south in the Hudson Valley and Catskills are expected to get a mix of snow, rain and freezing rain.

 

In Vermont:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) The National Weather Service in Burlington says a snowstorm will barrel through Vermont, leaving between 10 and 20 inches of snow in its wake.

Meteorologists say the storm will dump snow at a rate of about one to two inches an hour on Wednesday and Thursday in the northern Adirondack mountains, the Champlain Valley and central and northern Vermont, including the Northeast Kingdom.

According to the National Weather Service, light snow will develop Wednesday morning, increasing in intensity by the afternoon and becoming heavy at times into Thursday. Gusts will be up to 35 miles per hour.

The storm could also bring rain and sleet to parts of Rutland County and Windsor County on Wednesday evening.

Difficult driving conditions are expected.

 

In Ontario:

The balmy weather in southern Ontario is going to give way to yet another winter storm tonight. Environment Canada has posted warnings and watches from Windsor all the way to the Quebec border.

Some areas, notably the Niagara region and Kingston east to Quebec, can expect 15 to 25 centimetres of snow.

Other areas, including the Toronto region, can expect five-to-15 centimetres.

To make matters worse, brisk northeast winds will cause low visibilities and potentially hazardous driving conditions. (The Canadian Press)
