"Western New York Snow Storm Could Set Records"

"A winter storm that has brought freezing temperatures to most of the continental U.S. has also dumped several feet of snow on Buffalo and the western parts of New York state and may break local and national records.

At least 48 inches have already accumulated in under 24 hours in some places, according to the Washington Post.

Snow was falling at 3 to 5 inches per hour in some places, according to AccuWeather, and the U.S. snowfall record for a 24-hour period could be broken Tuesday night."
