(12 PM) Freezing Rain Eludes County; High Winds Are Next
Slippery conditions were not the norm for northern Chautauqua County this morning. But the fog did roll in.
According to the National Weather Service, most of the freezing rain hit Erie County with amounts of a half-inch to one-third of an inch found in Tonawanda and West Seneca. Rainfall, however, did hit a majority of the county, according to spotters. Dunkirk had 0.7 inches while Sinclairville and Mayville reported 0.67 inches. Fredonia tallied 0.6 inches while Silver Creek reported 0.2 inches.
Up next in this crazy week of weather are the winds, which could gust up to 60 mph. A high wind watch begins this evening and lasts through Friday afternoon. A gale wind warning takes effect at midnight through 4 p.m. Friday.
Winds could produce property damage, downed trees and power lines that could result in power outages. Travel in high-profile vehicles is also expected to be difficult.
