* winds... west 20 to 30 mph.

* Visibilities... as low as a quarter mile at times.

* Wind chill values... as low as 25 below.

* Impacts... lake effect snow and blowing snow will result in
hazardous travel at times with snow covered roads and greatly
reduced visibilities. Wind chills will reach dangerous levels.
Frigid temperatures have the potential to result in frozen
pipes, frostbite and hypothermia.

* Forecaster confidence... forecaster confidence in the wind chill
watch is medium. Warmer waters of Lake Ontario may hold wind
chills to advisory criteria.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or your favorite source of
weather information for the latest updates. Additional details
can also be found at www.Weather.Gov/Buffalo.

Report snow accumulation to the National Weather Service in
Buffalo by sending an email to bufstorm.Report@noaa.Gov... posting
to the NWS Buffalo facebook Page... or tweet... using the hashtag
bufwx

In lake effect snow the weather can vary from locally heavy snow
in narrow bands to clear skies just a few miles away. If you will
be traveling across the region be prepared for rapid changes in
Road and visibility conditions.

If you lose power and plan on running a generator... make sure
that the generator is located outdoors and is properly
ventilated. Space heaters should also be properly ventilated and
used only if they are operating properly. Make sure snow does not
block exhausts and fresh air intakes for high efficiency furnaces
and water heaters.

A wind chill watch is issued when strong winds will combine with
cold temperatures to create dangerously cold conditions for
exposed skin. The wind will make it feel like it is 15 degrees
below zero or colder for a period of several hours. If you will
be outdoors use common sense and dress warmly... making sure that
all exposed skin is covered. If possible... avoid prolonged
exposure to the cold to prevent frostbite and hypothermia.
