Storm Warning over, but we're still in for a few more hours of light snow
The Winter Storm Warning has ended for Niagara, Brock University and Niagara College are reopening today, but that doesn't mean we are out of the woods just yet.
Another 2 to 4 cm of snow is forecast to fall this morning before the monster storm moves out of the region this afternoon.
Niagara is sitting under a Special Weather Statement from Environment Canada.
Winds gusting to 70 kmh will cause blowing and drifting snow particularly in wide open areas.
Environment Canada says poor winter driving conditions are expected today due to reduced visibility at times in blowing snow. Untreated roads may be snow covered and slippery. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination.
Travel conditions will slowly improve beginning this afternoon as the snow tapers off to scattered flurries.
Ploughs are working overtime around Niagara trying to play catch up.
As one commuter coming in from the Hamilton area tells us, when you get to Grimsby on the QEW its like driving into a wall of snow.
While we don't have any official numbers yet from Environment Canada, the snowfall was a record setter in Western New York.
The National Weather service says the official storm total at Buffalo International Airport including the snow from Monday night was 36 cm.
That set a new record for this date, breaking the previous record of 24 cm set back in 1998.
There is one closure Wednesday - Boys and Girls Club of Niagara, all programs including child care and camps will be cancelled.
Larry, Tom McConnell, Betty Lou Souter, and the gang announce this year's totals and hand out a big thank you.
Larry talks with the St. Catharines Standard reporter who broke this story.
