Snow creates tricky commute

Wednesday is another snowy day in western New York. Overnight, the snow started falling. As you head out the door, make sure they have on a jacket, hat, gloves and a scarf to keep warm.

The snow that fell is heavy, making it tougher to shovel. There was not a lot of snow accumulation overnight, however, coupled with cars on the roadways makes it a slow commute.

Several of the major roadways in western New York had backups. I-190 South, I-290 East, I-190 North and Route 33 West all have portions that are congested Wednesday morning.  I-290 East is backed up from I-190 to Niagara Falls Boulevard, and Millersport Highway to I-90.

Winter storm warnings are in place and steady snow is expected. While sustained winds will not be all that strong, gusts to the mid and upper 20 mph range will be possible, just enough to blow around some of the snow that has already fallen.

Western New York is not the only area dealing with the severe winter weather. The same storm that could tie up your morning commute already left its mark on the midwest. This snow system is complicating things for travelers across the United States.
