Lake effect snow warning extended

A lake effect snow warning that was set to expire Tuesday morning was extended by more than a day.

The warning, from the National Weather Service office in Buffalo, is now through 10 a.m. this morning for Chautauqua, Wyoming and southern Erie counties. The original warning was set to expire at 7 a.m. Tuesday.

The weather service said between 5 and 10 inches of new snow accumulation could fall in certain areas, with 1 to 2 inches per hour expected. In addition, wind gusts could reach as high as 35 mph.

“Travel could be very difficult with snow covered roads,” the weather service said. “The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute and the Wednesday morning commute. … Heavy snow will fall in relatively narrow bands. If traveling, be prepared for rapidly changing road conditions and visibilities.”
