…DENSE FOG ADVISORY for Northern Tier of Pennsylvania until 10:00 am Thursday…Locally dense fog impacting much of Western New York, especially across the higher terrain…
Locally dense fog will start to lift across the higher terrain this afternoon, otherwise look for periods of rain to develop by later this morning, and continuing into the afternoon. Some moderate to heavy downpours are possible during the afternoon. Rain will end across the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metros by later this evening. By later tonight, the rain will mix and start to change to snow across the higher terrain, where a light coating is possible on some of the higher hilltops. Snow or mixed snow/rain showers will end early Friday morning south and east of the metro before the clouds thin during the day. Most area creeks are already near bankfull due to the runoff from melting snow over the past few days, and the light rain from the past few days. It is possible there could be some localized flood issues as around another inch of rain falls across the region Thursday.
Beyond that, Friday and even Saturday should be dry with even some sun breaking out for Friday afternoon. We will see more of that Saturday before clouds increase during the afternoon. Rain showers approach the area toward Saturday evening
Rain showers Saturday evening will once again change to some snow or mixed showers primarily across the higher terrain toward Easter Sunday morning before ending by later in the morning. We will most likely see some sun breaking out during Sunday afternoon.
The overall pattern will favor unseasonably cold weather for much of the next few weeks.

DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Residents in the City of Dunkirk are urged to boil and conserve their water until further notice.
During contractor activity at the high lift pump station, officials say someone hit a supply line, causing a large leak in the system.
The incident happened between the city’s water treatment plant and a supply tower. Because of the leak, contaminants could have entered the water system.
Although the leak has been fixed, the water tower reserves were greatly depleted and must be replenished. Officials say that turbidity is improving and water supply levels are increasing.
“Temporary repairs have been made to the water leak, but water levels are critically low, so the City and County are asking for the cooperation of all Dunkirk water customers to conserve water as much as possible during this water emergency,” Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services Director Christine Schuyler says.
The advisory will likely continue for two days, as two negative contamination samples are needed. During that time, the health department says people should bring their water to a rolling boil for at least one minute and then allow it to cool.
Along with boiling water to drink, residents are also urged to boil water they use during tasks like brushing their teeth. People are also asked to limit their laundry and dish washing.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — AMR workers could walk off the job next week.
Union members and the company have a Saturday night deadline to agree on a new labor deal.
An anonymous letter sent to employees warns about the consequences of a strike. It says employees won’t be eligible for unemployment, health benefits and 401K contributions.
If a strike does happen, several ambulance services across the state are on standby.
“We have some agencies that only have one ambulance, and I would advise them not to do it,” Office of Emergency Management Director Jeff Luckey says.
350 union members plan to strike if a deal can’t be reached. Leaders with AMR say they hope it won’t come to that.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Jim Kelly’s wife Jill has confirmed that the Bills great is out of surgery and headed into recovery.
“During pre-op the computer in our section wasn’t working so they had to get a new one. Then Jim says to me, “Did you see the computer? You should take a picture.” And so I did! As silly as it sounds, God gave us the #12computer. And almost 12 hours of surgery later….#12 is now on the road to recovery,” Jill wrote in the post.
A hospital spokesperson confirmed that the 12-hour surgery was successful and the cancer was removed.
“We successfully removed Mr. Kelly’s cancer from his upper jaw and lymph nodes from his neck. We then reconstructed his upper jaw. Mr. Kelly is resting comfortably post-operatively,” said Dr. Mark Urken, head and neck surgeon at Mount Sinai West.
