Just Enough to Slow Things Down!



Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - It's not much, but it's just enough!  An area of light snow is falling across much of Western New York and with the frigid temperatures this morning, it's creating some slick roadways for the morning commute.  Also, a Lake Snow Advisory for southern tier later today....

We're hearing of multiple spinouts and slippery conditions across the Buffalo Metro area.
