The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for widespread accumulating snow... which is in
effect from 1 PM Sunday to 7 am EST Monday.

* Locations... Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties. Greatest
amounts of lake effect snow across the higher terrain of the
Chautauqua ridge through this evening. General snowfall Sunday
and Sunday night across the entire region.

* Timing... the lake effect snow warning is in effect through
late this evening. The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect
from early Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning.

* Hazards... heavy lake effect snow through this evening. General
moderate snow Sunday and Sunday night.

* Accumulations... additional 3 to 6 inches tonight in persistent
snows for the lake effect snow. 1 to 2 inches Sunday and 3 to 5
inches Sunday night in the general snowfall.

* Winds... southwest 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph along the
Lake Erie shore... lighter inland.

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

* Impacts... heavy lake effect snow will produce significant
accumulations of snow on area roadways and poor visibilities
at times... resulting in hazardous travel conditions within the
most intense portion of the band. Be prepared for difficult
winter driving conditions with greatly reduced visibility and
snow cover on roads. This includes the New York state thruway
from Silver Creek to the New York and Pennsylvania state line.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

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
