Heavy lake effect snowfall for many parts of New York State

There is only about a week left in January, and everyone is already looking forward to what will hopefully be a warmer February. January was downright cold and brought lots of snow to the state; especially off Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

This weekend will feature colder temperatures and lake effect snowfall.

Lake effect snow will affect many parts of New York State this weekend through Sunday afternoon, and it really depends on where you live, when determining how much snowpack you will recieve.

Areas off Lake Erie will see snow and more snow the further south you go. The southern part of western New York could see up to 6 inches of snow, while Buffalo and surrounding suburbs could see 1 to 2 inches.

Central New York and areas near the Finger Lakes could see snow, but no major accumulations.

Areas off Lake Ontario will see the most snow. In fact, it will likely be snow that could have a serious impact on travel.

According to the National Weather Service, lake effect snow will form off Lake Ontario and bring 8 to 12 inches of snow near Watertown and just north of Pulaski, which could see at least 6 inches of snow.

It all depends on where the lake effect snow strip(s) are installed.

There is a lake effect snow warning in effect for Jefferson County, with lake effect snow advisories in effect for Lewis and Oswego counties. There is also a Lake Effect snow advisory for the southern level here in Western New York.

Drive carefully if traveling in these areas this weekend.
