Lake-effect snow poses tricky commute Wednesday afternoon

Lake-effect snow poses tricky commute Wednesday afternoon

The heavy snow is not expected to be continuous, but will come in several rounds.

Friday night: A 50 percent chance of snow, low around 18.

As colder air continues to spread further southeast towards NY, lake-effect snow will develop during the late evening hours on Tuesday for areas northeast of Lake Ontario in the Watertown area, and northeast of Lake Erie with heavy snow potential for the City of Buffalo.

Officials are keeping their eye on lake-effect snow that is expected to hit the western portion of the state and another closer blast that could reach as far east as Herkimer and Hamilton counties.

The National Weather Service says the band of snow that formed earlier over the relatively warm waters of Lake Erie will stay in place for much of Wednesday afternoon and into the evening, causing low visibility and slick conditions.

The advisory is in effect until 1 a.m. Thursday. Most of IN will be dry through the day. The hot spot for the heaviest lake snow to occur will end up being east of a line between about Watertown and Sandy Creek across southeastern Jefferson and northern Lewis counties over the northern Tug Hill. In addition, we do see clouds and a little moisture setting up in far southern OH, south of US 50, and that can bring some minor snows as well.

BUFFALO, NY- Lake effect snow will continue to shift south of Buffalo Wednesday night.

Total snow accumulations of 3-6 inches are expected. 20 off Lake Erie. Locally, some areas could receive more than 2 feet, particularly in the Buffalo Southtowns. Snow showers - and cold temperatures - remain in the forecast through Tuesday, though with lower chances of precipitation. This can bring scattered snow showers to a good chunk of the state...perhaps up to 60% coverage.

Sunday: Mostly sunny high near 34.
