NWS continues Winter Storm Warning as white stuff begins falling; it continues until 1 a.m. Thursday...  
The major storm system now projected to dump up to 15 inches of snow on parts of Chautauqua County is moving into the region this afternoon.  The National Weather Service in Buffalo is continuing a Winter Storm Warning until 1 a.m. Thursday.  Forecaster Kirk Apfell says we'll see about an inch of snow as the storm moves in between 1 and 4 p.m.  Apfell says we'll get 4 to 7 inches of snow tonight and overnight... and, another 2 to 4 inches during the day Wednesday.  He says that's when we're likely to see some blowing and drifting snow in the area.  Apfell says snow will be a little more spotty on Wednesday... but, will be more likely to stick Wednesday due to colder temperatures.  He adds the storm will evolve into more of a Lake Effect storm Wednesday night and into Thanksgiving Day... with snow developing in the traditional snow belt areas.

Gerace urges drivers to use caution during this Wintry period...

With heavy snow in the forecast... Chautauqua County Sheriff Joseph Gerace is encouraging drivers to be prepared for slippery driving conditions.  Gerace says the biggest cause of winter related crashes is speed... and, his best advice is to slow down.  He also says you should make sure your car is ready for winter travel.  Gerace says it's also important to plan ahead.  And depending on weather conditions, you might want to postpone travel if possible... so, plan ahead.  When venturing out, make sure you're dressed for conditions... and, carry a cell phone and flash light.  It's also a good idea to keep your fuel tank full.  Gerace says you may have to keep your vehicle running for a long time should you become stranded.
