Ehh...Northtowns and into Niagara County have the best of it...they only get 40-60 inches on average.  Buffalo itself gets almost 100 inches and is the snowiest largish city in the US. Have also won the National Golden SnowGlobe 2 of the last 3 years for most snowfall which includes all cities over 100K population(including Alaska). Still hold the record for most snowfall in a season of any city with over 100K population as well with 199.2 inches.

 

But yes, in general the Southtowns gets more snow.  

 

However, the snow isn't the worst of it. the worst are the endless cloudy days where you may not see the sun for 2+ weeks at a time and routinely go 7-10 days without seeing it. That and the wind which is brutal, especially as you get closer to the lake...they have lines strung up downtown for people to hold onto when crossing the street for a reason...

This Buffalo you speak of sounds like a lovely place. I really must plan a vacation there. Maybe next November.

I'm watching NBC Nightly News, and they have a report about the weather. They say the bullseye of the storm is Buffalo. Unfortunately, the map they showed had the arrow in the Watertown area. Geniuses!

I saw that too - busted out laughing.....they were close though, just the wrong side of Lake Ontario.....

Man this is wild already...started around 7:30ish and already have 6 inches at the airport before 10pm...it's snowing sideways right now very angrily.

 

Interested to see what it looks like when I wake up tomorrow morning.

It was doing that on my way to the store. Couldn't see 10 feet Infront of me. It stopped while I was in there and hasn't snowed since. That was last night at 11. So far the snow has been a major disappointment in the city of buffalo

It’s starting to shape up to what they said it could be. I’m in Hamburg. Thought this one might hit the north towns harder (and maybe it is) but the last 5 hours we’ve been getting hammered in the south towns

I haven't been up all night but what I shoveled before I went to bed was pretty much still clear now besides wind blowing it around. I'm on Hertel

Well in that case that is more on NBC than weather forecasters since other maps show to peaks - Buffalo and Watertown.

I totally get it now ladies. I expected at least 24 inches and only got 4 inches.

 

Depends on where you are.  I have about 20 inches and it's still snowing...Lakeview area got around 3 feet, OP/WS got anywhere from 20-30" by this morning.

South of Buffalo is currently getting pounded with snow. Snow models had the heaviest north of Buffalo I thought. Maybe it’s still going to move up at some point.

 

Hopefully it does for Southtown’s sake.

Was supposed to but it appears the heaviest will be in South Buffalo through Lancaster. Northtowns will still get a good amount tho

Snow was/is falling in Hamburg at 5 inches per hour.
