...A BAND OF HEAVY LAKE EFFECT SNOW WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT SOUTHERN
ERIE...NORTHERN CATTARAUGUS...CENTRAL WYOMING AND CHAUTAUQUA
COUNTIES...

At 1155 AM EST, A band of heavy lake effect snow producing snowfall
rates of at least 2 inches per hour extended inland from Lake Erie
with Hamburg to Warsaw on the northern end and Sherman to Arcade on
the southern end.

This band of snow will remain nearly stationary through mid
afternoon, while continuing to intensify with snowfall rates likely
increasing further. Reports of thunder have already been reported
within this band. Visibilities will be reduced to less than a
quarter mile at times.

Locations impacted include...
Dunkirk, Fredonia, Hamburg, Boston, Eden, Springville, Perry, Warsaw,
Colden and Westfield.

This includes the following highways...
 Interstate 90 between exits 61 and 57A.
 Interstate 86 between exits 4 and 10.

Conditions in the above locations will continue to deteriorate as we
move through the afternoon hours. Travel will become increasingly
difficult as snow cover increases on area roads. If you must travel
in areas south of Buffalo be prepared for severe winter weather
driving conditions. Slow down and allow plenty of extra time when
traveling.
