Lake effect snow will create difficult travel in the Finger Lakes

NWS: Whiteout conditions possible overnight as lake effect picks up

It’s going to be cold and snowy through the night and morning.

Parts of the region will see upwards of 4-8 inches of new accumulation between now and morning. While others will see just 1-3 inches of new accumulation.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Monroe, Wayne, and Cayuga counties.

It’s lake effect snow and will deliver changeable conditions throughout the night. If you’re taking to the road – use caution, and plan for extra time.

Bands of lake effect snow will run across the region – dropping from the north. Meanwhile, temperatures will crater to single-digits.

By morning, wind chill readings will be well-below zero. If you’re heading out in the morning – make sure to be bundled up.

The National Weather Service says the biggest issues with travel across the region will be the whiteout conditions inside these bands. Winds will gust inside these bands – creating difficult road conditions, given the cold temps.
