...A BAND OF LAKE EFFECT SNOW WILL AFFECT LEWIS...SOUTHERN JEFFERSON
AND NORTHEASTERN OSWEGO COUNTIES...

At 1047 AM EST, A band of lake effect snow producing snow fall rates
of 1 TO 2 inches per hour extended from Chaumont to Philadelphia on
the northern end and from Sandy Creek to Lowville on the southern
end.

This band of snow will remain nearly stationary into the early
afternoon, while getting better organized with snowfall rates likely
increasing further. Visibilities will be reduced to less than a
quarter mile at times.

Locations impacted include...
Watertown, Fort Drum, Sandy Island Beach State Park, Carthage,
Lowville, West Carthage, Adams, Dexter, Glen Park and Herrings.

This includes Interstate 81 between exits 37 and 48.

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