The National Weather Service has issued a local winter weather advisory over the or'easter expected to hit the area Wednesday night through Thursday.

However, the heavy snow, blizzard conditions, severe thunderstorms and cyclones moving from the Southeast through the Ohio Valley are expected to be far worse in Western New York than east of the Hudson River.

Snow accumulation here could reach 2-4 inches, along with a tenth of an inch of ice. 

"Snow and ice accumulation will make for dangerous travel this afternoon and evening," said the NWS.

The forecast calls for rain, snow and sleet after 3 p.m. Wednesday. The high should be near 31 degrees, and it will be breezy with an east wind 10 to 14 mph, with gust as high as 32 mph.

The weather service said there is a 100 percent chance of precipitation, with a daytime snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 3 inches.

Snow, freezing rain, and sleet will continue Wednesday night, and it could be heavy at times. The temperature will fall to around 29 degrees. It will continue to be windy. Winds will be from the east at 21 to 30 mph. Gusts could get as high as 55 mph. New snow and sleet accumulation of 2 to 4 inches is possible.

Thursday's forecast calls for rain before noon. The temperature will rise to near 43, though winds will stay strong at 14 to 16 mph from the northeast, with gusts as high as 32 mph.

Mostly cloudy skies will stay around during early Thursday evening, after which there will be gradual clearing with a low around 26 and northwest winds from 11 to 15 mph.
