Tonawanda News —

As the first significant snowfall of the winter season touched down on Western New York overnight, by Thursday morning residents began digging out. 

In the Tonawandas, nearly a foot of snow fell beginning Wednesday afternoon and into Thursday morning. Sustained winds topping off at 28 mph just after midnight and occasional gusts nearing 40 mph made navigation and clean-up efforts difficult, as the drifting snow blanketed roadways. 

Jack Kanack, who runs out of his North Tonawanda home and operates a weather station there that gives hyper-local statistics, Paone added that forecasters continue to track an approaching weather system that is expected to bring only light snow showers today.
