Lake effect snow watch in effect from Wednesday afternoon
through Thursday evening…

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a lake effect
snow watch…which is in effect from Wednesday afternoon through
Thursday evening.

* Locations: the lake effect snow watch is in effect for much of
Western New York including Erie…Genesee…Wyoming…
Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties.

* Timing: lake effect snow is expected to develop late Wednesday
afternoon and intensify Wednesday night through Thursday. There
remains some uncertainty as to exactly where the lake effect
snow will persist the longest. At this time it appears the
heaviest snow is most likely from the Buffalo southtowns and
southern Genesee county southward across ski country. If the
forecast wind direction changes just slightly…the heavier snow
may move north towards the heart of the Buffalo metro area and
Batavia or farther south into Chautauqua and Cattaraugus County.

* Snow accumulations: snow accumulations may exceed one foot where
the lake effect snow persists the longest.
* Impacts: heavy lake effect snow may produce difficult travel
conditions with snow covered roads and poor visibility.
Precautionary/preparedness actions…
A lake effect snow watch means that significant winter weather is
possible in localized areas within the next 36 hours. Stay tuned
to NOAA weather radio or your favorite source of weather
information for the latest updates. Additional details can also
be found at www.weather.gov/buffalo.
