Winter Storm Warning

1/24/2019 (Permalink)

...WINTER STORM WATCH all of Erie County (including metro Buffalo), Wyoming, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, 1:00 am Friday until 7:00 am Saturday...

...Buffalo area creeks will run high this afternoon.  We continue to monitor Cayuga, and Buffalo creeks where some ice jams have been observed, but so far the jams have been breaking and or water if flowing underneath...

Expect just some scattered snow showers this afternoon, and as the breeze picks up, be prepared for a brisk wind chill by late.

The temperature continues to dip tonight which will trigger some lake effect snow.  An increasing wind will result in some blowing, drifting snow, and a bitterly cold wind chill.  Tonight's lake snow will impact downtown, the eastern, immediate southern suburbs of Buffalo, and possibly the northtowns for a period. Accumulations should be in the 2-4" range.

Friday, the lake snow band will start out from downtown south and eastward, then shift south through the immediate southern suburbs further southward across southern Erie, Wyoming, and northern

sections of the Southern Tier.  These areas will be the focus for much of the snow Friday, with 4-7" of snow possible.  A few scattered snow showers are expected elsewhere.  As colder air deepens Friday night, the lake snow may intensify for a  period across ski country.

A weakening single band as it drifts northward toward the metro Saturday morning.  When all is said and done, most areas will receive some fresh snowfall over the next several days.  More widespread light to moderate snow Sunday will be accompanied by a brisk wind. 

Aside from a quiet Monday, next week will be very wintry.  Another more widespread system will spread snow into the area via a more potent storm Tuesday.  Extreme cold is likely beginning toward 1/30.   This outbreak may rival the polar vortex blast during February 2014.
