Route 60 reopened; accumulations vary in storm

This tractor-trailer mishap caused the partial closing of Fredonia-Stockton Road around noon today.

If you’re in Cassadaga, there’s snow aplenty. If you are in Dunkirk, however, there is just a dusting through this afternoon.

That was to be expected by forecasters when the National Weather Service posted a winter storm warning on Monday. Some areas, they noted, would get minor accumulations while other regions would be under treacherous driving conditions.

Route 60, around Cassadaga, is one of those areas where the going is slow due to accumulations and visibility issues. An accident closed the road from Cassadaga to Fredonia around 10 this morning. It has since been reopened.

Portions of the town of Pomfret, especially those along the hills, are reporting more than a foot of snow.

The warning continues through 6 p.m. Here are some of the snowfall totals from overnight, according to the National Weather Service:

Traffic on Route 60 was at a standstill this morning after an accident.

• Perrysburg, 5.6 inches.

• Cassadaga, 5 inches.

• Fredonia, 4 inches.

• Dunkirk, dusting to 2 inches.

• Silver Creek, 1 inch.

Roads are clear after a dusting of snow in the city of Dunkirk this morning.
