(WIVB)– A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Niagara and Orleans County until February 6 at 10:00 p.m. by the National Weather Service Buffalo.
The National Weather Service has canceled the advisory in both counties.
The NWS says it expects blowing lake effect snow and possible accumulations of 1 to 3 inches in snow coming off the lake.
