It's going to be 80 degrees tomorrow, which means one thing. Snow.

All Western New Yorkers know the big danger that comes with a warm autumn season is the potential for lake effect snows once the weather gets cold. And that's because the warmer the weather, the warmer the lake -- which means it'll take more time for the lake to freeze -- all of that moisture just waiting to be picked up by winter winds puts WNY in the sweet spot for lots of lake effect snow accumulation.

According to an article in The Buffalo News, "Areas prone to lake-effect snow will also see high totals, including Cleveland, Ohio; Erie, Pennsylvania; and Buffalo, New York," says AccuWeather.

This echoes the prediction by The Farmers Almanac, which says WNY "should brace for a snowier-than-normal winter."
