Mild Start with Slight Snowfall:
GLOW region sees little snow depth as winter arrives in western Southern Tier

If you love snow, this past weekend wasn’t necessarily cause for celebration. The GLOW region was treated to its first taste of winter this past weekend, and the results were decidedly mild.

Portions of Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and southern Erie counties got some significant snowfalls, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo. But Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming counties saw little.

An area four miles east of Buffalo led the GLOW region as of about 9 a.m. Monday, according to NWS data. A total depth of 4 inches was reported. Depths of 2 inches were reported in Silver Springs, Portageville and the village of Wyoming. Medina and Mount Morris reported depths of 1 inch each.

Avon and Dansville reported trace amounts, according to the NWS. There was also about an inch of snow over the weekend in Batavia — enough to make the ground and rooftops white.

In comparison, a 16-inch depth was reported three miles west of the village of Cattaraugus in Cattaraugus County, along with a depth of 11 inches in Jamestown. A depth of 7 inches was reported in Rushford, Allegany County. As for the rest of this week? The weather forecast for Tuesday called for light snow, followed by a rain-snow mix, according to the NWS. Temperatures were expected to be in the upper 30s, and could reach as high as 50 degrees with showers and breeze on Thursday.
