additional 6 to 12 inches Thursday night through Friday evening.

* Winds... west 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph.

difficult travel at times with snow covered roads and greatly
reduced visibilities.

* Forecaster confidence... forecast confidence in the watch is
medium. There is still some uncertainty in the location and
intensity of the band that is expected to develop Thursday
night and Friday.

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.

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

A lake effect snow watch means that significant winter weather is
