Sherman schools locked-down for "potentially dangerous" situation...

A potentially "dangerous situation" about mid-day Tuesday in the village of Sherman led to a one-hour lock-down at Sherman Central School.  However...

Ginestry says they were given the all-clear about 12:45 p.m., and, the school was taken out of lock-down.  State Police have released no further information on what took place... or whether any arrests took place.


Record low temperature for March 4 tied in Buffalo as most of WNY below-zero Tuesday morning...

The latest round of polar air caused temperatures to plummet well-below the zero mark again overnight.  Wind Chills weren't as bad as first thought... but, air temperatures were bitterly cold.  Forecaster Dave Zaff with the National Weather Service says it got cold enough in Buffalo to tie a record dating back to World-War Two.  Zaff says they fell to -3 at the airport overnight.  The lowest temperature they heard of was 18-below in Franklinville.  We had reports of 11-below and 9-below zero in the immediate Jamestown-area... and, 7-below zero at the Dunkirk Airport during the overnight and early morning hours.  Temperatures will start to warm up later this week, but, Zaff says there won't be a major change in the current pattern.  He says we'll still be at or below average for the near future.
