National Weather Service Issues Lake Effect Snow Watch


We’re in for another significant snowfall. The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Watch for late tonight through tomorrow evening. Snow accumulations in excess of 10 inches are possible within what’s described as a “narrow but intense” snow band. Heavy snow with snowfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour are possible. Blowing and drifting may also occur, with north winds of between 10 and 20 miles per hour. As a result, visibilities may be reduced to one-quarter mile or less, roads may become slick and snow-covered, and roads may become impassable. The WKVI Information Center will be staffed tonight to bring you the very latest on this storm, including any closings or delays or travel advisories. Check our closings and delays page frequently for updates.
