Snow may create slick roadways

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – With wintry weather expected in western New York, roads could be tricky for some drivers. The Erie County Sheriff’s Office said they are prepared to deal with the snow.

Early Wednesday, snowflakes started to fall in the region and make some roads wet.

It’s recommended for drivers to have emergency winter driving kits in their vehicles.

The AAA suggests having:

– Bag of abrasive material (sand, salt, or non-clumping cat litter)
– Small snow shovel
– Snow brush and ice scraper
– Traction mats
– Flashlight with batteries
– Windshield washer fluid
– Gloves or mittens
– Cloth or paper towels
– Booster cables
– Blankets and extra winter clothing (scarf, gloves, hat, boots)
– Warning flares or triangles
– First aid kit
– Cellular phone
– Drinking water and a small food item
