Winter storm watch issued in Buffalo
Monday, December 8, 2014, 5:39 PM - The National Weather Service (NWS) in the U.S. has issued a winter storm watch for the Buffalo area ahead of a system that could bring significant snowfall and gusty winds.
Back in November, Buffalo, N.Y. made headlines when a massive storm hit the area, burying some places in more than a metre of snow.
Most of that has since melted -- but it looks like winter is about to take another swipe at the region.
A system is expected to track into the area late Tuesday night, lasting through to Thursday.

Up to 30 cm is expected to accumulate in some places, coupled with wind gusts up to 56 kilometres per hour.
Visibility could be reduced to less than a kilometre at times.
"There remains some uncertainty with respect to the track of the low pressure system and the location of the snow," NWS says in a statement.
Roads are expected to be slippery. Motorists are being advised to use extra caution.
