Expect some additional accumulation on Friday, but nothing that will cause major headaches.
The region saw a general light coating of snow overnight, and now another couple inches are possible through the day on Friday.
Snow will continue to accumulate today with greatest totals (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.) across the hills south of Buffalo, and higher terrain east of Lake Ontario. pic.twitter.com/RYjn1hEcvx

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil added that:
– The weather will seem more like mid-winter on Friday as wind makes it feel significantly colder than the air temperature reads.
– Moisture wrapping around the low has brought a spray of snow into the Finger Lakes. Most of the snow is light so far, as temperatures aloft are barely cold enough to elicit any extra snow off of the Great Lakes.
– The snow may break up into just some scattered flurries during lunchtime, but should then transition over to some lake enhanced squalls for the afternoon.
– It does not appear that the squalls will stay in one place for a long time, so be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions throughout the afternoon. The transient nature of the snow bands will also keep snow totals in check, though.
Temperatures this weekend will not be warming. While forecasters have hinted that a general warm up could be coming in the next 7 to 10 days, it likely won’t be the kind of warm we saw in late-February.
