Lake effect snow hammers Western New York

Jan 25, 2019

Like real estate and restaurants, location matters when it comes to lake effect snow in Western New York. While Niagara and Orleans Counties are expected to see little or no snow Friday, it's  a drastically different story in Buffalo and locations south of the city. The National Weather Service reported snow fall rates at nearly three inches per hour earlier Friday morning in some locations and more activity is expected to move throughout the region later Friday. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Erie, Genesee, Wyoming, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties.
