Original story:

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory that will be in effect until 1 p.m. for the entire GLOW region and several surrounding counties.

Those included in the advisory are Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming counties, along with Erie, Monroe, Niagara, Ontario, Wayne and northern Cayuga counties.

An additional 2 to 3 inches of snow is forecast.

Most of the snow will occur through late this morning. Winds gusting as high as 30 mph will result in patchy blowing snow in open areas, the Weather Service said.

Periods of snow will result in snow covered roads and limited visibilities. Slow down and use caution while driving.

Icy roads are also possible as the snow melts on the roads and then quickly refreezes. Give yourself extra time to reach your destination.

Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions will continue to impact the morning commute, the Weather Service said.

This morning, moderate wet snow with pockets of heavier snow was occurring over much of western New York to the northern Finger Lakes, including portions of the Southern Tier, according to the Weather Service.

Total snow accumulations through 10 a.m. could reach more than 3 inches in parts of western New York, and 2 to 3 inches elsewhere, the Weather Service said.
