Statement as of 12:38 PM EST on December 10, 2016

Expires 1:00 AM EST on December 11, 2016


... Lake effect snow warning remains in effect until 1 am EST
Sunday...

* locations... southern Erie County. Greatest amounts across the
Boston Hills through late afternoon... then along the Lake Erie
shore tonight.

* Timing... through overnight tonight.

* Accumulations... additional 3 to 5 inches this afternoon and 3 to
6 inches tonight in persistent snows.

* Winds... west 10 to 20 mph.

* 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
Hamburg to Silver Creek.

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
