Jamestown-area deals with more snow, and rain Friday night and Saturday...
The Winter weather "roller coaster" is continuing today... this time after a general 3 to 5 inch snowfall wrapped late this morning in Chautauqua County.  Forecaster Jon Hitchcock with the National Weather Service in Buffalo said late yesterday that a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through 1 this afternoon.  Hitchcock says... unlike with the Lake Effect Snow of the past couple of days... this will impact the entire region.  He says there'll be more snow in the higher terrains and inland from Lake Erie.  Hitchcock says... before it becomes a rain snow and sleet mix... we'll see about 2-to-3 inches along the Lake Erie Shoreline and at least 3 to 4 inches inland.  Hitchcock says some locations may also see a thin coating of ice today.  The widespread snowfall will bring slippery travel conditions across the area.

Chautauqua County's major ski resort is now open... and, conditions at Peek 'n Peak near Findley Lake are "great" to begin the new season.  That from Director of Mountain Operations, Brad Gravink, who says they were open at 8:30 a.m. Friday... with a good, natural snow base... and, 16 of their 27 trails open.  Gravink says they're making snow on the remaining 8 trails, which they hope to open by Christmas Week.  He says the Peak is open until 10 o'clock tonight... and, will again be open all day Sunday.  As for snowmaking... he says they're already well ahead of where they normally are... and, in very good shape compared to last year's "off-season."  In fact... he says they've already made about half of what they usually do in an entire season the past 8 days.  Gravink says the rain predicted for today should be nothing more than a blip on the radar... because we're back into the snow early next week.  He says the tubing area also opened Friday afternoon.  For more information on Peek n' Peak... call them at 355-4141... or go on-line to pknpk.com.
