Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester could see from 3 to 6 inches, according to AccuWeather.com, and enough snow will fall around Albany, Burlington and Montreal to create hazardous driving conditions.

Meteorologist Heather Orow said this morning the storm is "generally going to be an issue for travel".
