Lake Erie waves churn as second round of winter weather arrives

Lake Erie waves churn as second round of winter weather arrives

Forecasters say 4 to 7 inches of snow accumulation is expected, with areas between I-94 and I-69 likely to be the hardest-hit. Tuesday will see more flurries during the day as well as at night.

The low will continue to push east Thursday, but then lake-effect snow will kick back in.

Two to four inches of snow is expected to accumulate along the eastern shoreline, but there is the potential of localized amounts of six inches or more.

Be very careful if you will be out and about tonight and especially the morning rush Wednesday, as many roads will become slick and snow covered tonight, especially late tonight into Wednesday across CNY.

"Total snow accumulations of 4 to 7 inches are possible".

The second Alberta clipper could produce another few inches of snow across the region overnight Wednesday through dawn Thursday.

It's blustery, windy and cold out there, and the Lake Erie waves are churning!

A general snowfall this morning will transition to lake effect snow Tuesday.

Take a breath, snow shovelers, but get ready for another dose. The morning hours will be brutal, with many neighborhoods waking up to readings in the upper teens (mountains and foothills) to the lower 20s (Charlotte and Piedmont). Erie, Pennsylvania, and southwestern NY, as well as spots south of Lake Ontario, including Rochester and Syracuse, are where model guidance is dumping the heaviest accumulations. Temperatures will steadily increase, and should be above average by the end of the weekend.
