First Defense: Lake Snow Regenerates Tonight; A Calmer Week Ahead

JAMESTOWN – The lake effect snow band has moved well north near the Lake Ontario shoreline and has weakened as it has lost its moisture from Lake Erie. However, the band will come back throughout the day and moves south into the Southern Tier.
The National Weather Service maintains Winter Weather Advisories for Lake Effect Snow for much of Western New York until Friday morning.

That snow band will reorganize near Lake Ontario as a clipper system moves through. The winds shift around and move the band back into her Southern Tier by the evening hours tonight.

Model guidance has shown the band nearing 2 inch per hour snowfall rates after it reorganizes. The band will continue to work through the Southern Tier and sag further south into Northwest PA before dissipating by Friday morning.
Additional Snowfall Accumulations: Another 6 to 8 inches are possible in the Southern Tier, with the 8 inches on the highest hills. 3 to 6 inches along lower elevations and 2 to 4 further eastward.

High pressure returns during the second half of the weekend into early next week, which will bring temps back into the 30s with sunshine a plenty each day.
