CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo-Niagara International Airport says its runways have reopened.

The closure of the runways lasted for more than five hours due to zero visibility and all the snow that had fallen. An NFTA spokesperson tells News 4 that 14 inches of snow fell there between Midnight and 5:30 a.m.

The NFTA says the Buffalo Bills will leave the airport as scheduled after this Sunday’s game was moved to Detroit.

Needless to say, both the Bills and the Browns would probably have a pretty hard time playing at Highmark Stadium this weekend. Click/tap here to take a look at the snow that fell there.
