* Impacts... heavy lake effect snow and areas of blowing snow
will lead to significant accumulations of snow on area

hazardous to nearly impossible travel conditions at times
within the most intense portion of the band. If you must
travel be prepared for severe winter driving conditions with
near zero visibility and deep snow cover on roads. This
includes the New York state thruway from Hamburg to the New
York/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
