Who would think a high temperature in the mid-teens would be a welcomed warm-up?
That’s what we are expecting today.
A 7:00 this morning, it was 7 degrees below zero in Batavia but temperatures are expected to quickly recover to the teens above zero at mid-day and near 20 by late afternoon.
The Wind Chill Warning for Genesee and Wyoming Counties has been cancelled.
Not too cold for suspected crime.
45 year old Jonathan Hyman of Oakfield was arrested following a traffic stop on Route 5 in the Town of Batavia.
Hyman is charged with pot possession and criminal possession of a weapon.
He was given a court appearance ticket.
The Batavia Police Department says it has received multiple complaints of a robo-call scam from Apple saying your iCloud account has been corrupted.
Apple has been contacted and confirmed they do not make robo-calls to notify customers of corrupted accounts.
BPD says they just want to remind citizens not to provide any personal or bank information over the phone.
The Batavia City Council is meeting tomorrow night.
Council is expected to name DPW director Matt Worth as interim city manager.
Council will also be asked to pay Worth a stipend of $1,000 per month for the additional work.
The Buffalo Bills are offering their thanks to the Cincinnati Bengals for getting them to the playoffs.
The Bills organization ordered more than 14-hundred wings from a restaurant in Buffalo and had them driven to Ohio, which Bengals Safety George Iloka said was very classy thing to do:
Instead of feeding hungry Bengals players, the wings were brought to the Children’s Home of Cincinnati, where kids with special-needs got to enjoy them.
The Buffalo Bills play their first playoff game in 17 years as they visit the Jacksonville Jaguars. If the Bills win, they visit New England next weekend.
