The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories for several Western New York counties, including Allegany and Cattaraugus counties.
The advisory for Allegany County will be in effect until 6 p.m. Friday. The Cattaraugus County advisory will be in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday.
According to the agency, snow accumulations of 5 to 10 inches are expected in both counties.
"Periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will result in slippery roads and limited visibilities," the agency's advisories warned.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo urged New Yorkers to use caution while traveling.
"Our state agencies have been closely monitoring this impending storm and are ready to deploy any necessary assets to keep the roads clear and respond to any potential emergencies," he said.
