RANDOLPH – Residents in parts of Randolph woke up to not just downed tree limbs and powerlines Friday, but snow in some of the higher hilled areas.

Video taken near the Randolph Veterinary Clinic shows a dusting of flakes on the grass, mailboxes, and power poles.

Weather forecasters say the rain first turned to snow at around 1 a.m. in Jamestown.

“As a strong cold front moved through overnight, temperatures fell west to east with that front, allowing the precipitation to change over to some wet snow,” said WNYNewsNow Chief Weather Forecaster Dakota Hunter. “Jamestown officially bottomed out at 32 degrees at 2 a.m. this morning.”

The flakes then changed over completely around 3 a.m. in parts of Cattaraugus County.

Any remaining precipitation will likely melt off as temperatures warm slightly into the afternoon.
