Paone says a shift in the winds during the overnight moved the snow back into the north county... but, Paone says after another 3 to 5 inches of snow... it should begin tapering off.  By later tomorrow... he says we'll begin seeing a gradual warm-up.  It may reach 17 by tomorrow afternoon... but, we'll be close to 50 over the weekend.  He says we may be looking at ice-jamming by then.  The Blizzard of 2014 has dropped a good two-feet of snow -- or more -- in parts of the north county into the Buffalo-area.
