BUFFALO, N.Y. (WABC) — Gov. Kathy Hachul is expected to declare a state of emergency for the upstate Thursday morning as Buffalo braces for a severe snowstorm.

Up to four meters of snow may fall in the region in the coming days. The Buffalo Bills are scheduled to host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, and at this point, that game is still on.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen says he’s helping his teammates who haven’t experienced snow in Buffalo before and is urging everyone to drive with caution.

“I let everybody in the locker room know what to do, especially some of these rookies who have never ridden snow before. We have ice scrapers out front for our guys to take home,” Allen said.

Public schools in Buffalo have already announced they will be closed Friday.
