Snowstorm Slows Rush-Hour Traffic in Buffalo

The city of Buffalo, New York, received its first measurable snowfall as a band of lake-effect snow moved through on Wednesday morning, November 29, causing rush-hour delays on snow-covered roads.

The National Weather Service (NWS) measured 1.9 inches of snow by 7 am at the Buffalo airport.

Crews began salting main and secondary roads in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Buffalo mayor Byron Brown said.
