Good Tuesday from Meteorologist Todd Santos:
Lake Effect Snow WARNING for Southern Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Wyoming counties from Tuesday 6PM until 4AM Thursday morning.
Lake Effect Snow ADVISORY for Northern Erie and Genesee from 4 PM Tuesday afternoon until 1 AM Wednesday. Continuing for Allegany County until 3AM Thu
Cold and breezy conditions will greet you on this Tuesday with a few snow showers, especially along the higher elevations of the So. Tier. By this evening the snow will likely spread towards Buffalo and the Northtowns with a quick coating likely into early tomorrow morning. Gusty winds and blowing snow within the more robust bands of lake snow will make for areas of difficult driving conditions overnight. There will also be a weak area of low pressure dropping into the Eastern Lakes that will combine with the lake to briefly enhance some of the snowfall.
The chances for snow will continue on and off through the weekend, though some of the more focused lake bands are likely to be found later tonight and again late Wednesday. Many of the areas in the Lake Effect Snow Warning will find 48 hour snow totals in the 10-14" range with a few higher pockets. Areas within the Lake Effect Snow Advisory region could find 4-6" with the chance for periods of blowing snow. West to Southwest winds will continue into the finish of the week, which will keep the lakes open for business. Cold temperatures will remain in place through the weekend with a few additional chances for light snow.
