Lake effect snow expected to remain in the southtowns

Jan 17, 2021

A Lake Effect Snow Warning will remain in place today for much of the region--including the city of Buffalo--however, the majority of the accumulation is likely to be seen in Southern Erie and Northern Chautauqua counties. "That snow band is going to remain nearly stationary through the morning commute and into the early afternoon before heading south toward the Southern Tier," said meteorologist Heather Kenyon at the Buffalo office of the National Weather Service. Snow totals this season have been below average to this point, but Kenyon expects that to change in the coming days.
