Winter Storm Warnings & Advisories for WNY

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service said the storm is expected to blow in late Saturday and bring intense snow and strong winds throughout the region before calming Monday morning.

The warning has been issued through 1 p.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for much of the Front Range, foothills and part of Colorado's high country. He says four to eight inch amounts are not out of the question. Storm activity is expected to peak Friday night into Saturday morning, but gusty winds are very likely during this storm. Snow could develop during that time, as temperatures will be hovering around freezing.

Most of the heaviest precipitation is forecast to fall much farther east of the Buffalo Niagara region by Tuesday morning. Temps will hover around the low to mid-30s, and there will be a couple of light snow or mixed showers in southern and SE NH out well ahead of the next storm.

Symbols for toilet functions to be unified
The Japanese companies also aim to make the new pictograms an worldwide standard in toilets, eventually. Many toilets in Japan come with multiple functions such as a seat warmer, deodorizer and bidet.

Another winter storm warning is in effect from midnight to 4 a.m. Monday for the greater Reno, Carson City and Minden area including the cities of Sparks, Gardnerville and Virginia City.

The National Weather Service points out that "typical mid-winter weather will become established again through the long-term period" as a "fundamental pattern change" takes place across North America starting Thursday.

Forecasters do not expect ice storm conditions. Rochester's high temperature Monday will be about 40 degrees and 34 degrees on Tuesday.
