LIVINGSTON COUNTY – Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty posted to Twitter that nor’easter ‘Stella’ is positioned to be a ‘total bust.’
All Livingston County schools closed in anticipation of the storm, originally predicted to drop up to 15 inches of snow on the region. The National Weather Service activated a Winter Storm Warning, which will remain in effect until Wednesday at 8 p.m. Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency for western New York and banned tractor trailers on the thruway.
“Unless something changes significantly this afternoon, ‘Stella’ will go down as a total bust in Livingston County,” tweeted Dougherty.
The Sheriff’s Office issued no restrictions or advisories as of 9:47 a.m. Tuesday.
WeatherUnderground.com says that there is a near 100 percent chance of precipitation starting at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
The National Weather Service still says that 11 to 20 inches are expected Tuesday. Local estimates are lower. Our news partner News10NBC forecasts 5 to 8 inches Tuesday, with more coming Wednesday.
