Blowing snow adds to area's weather concerns

Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night: Temperatures will fall rapidly; wind chills will be in the single digits by 10 p.m. Lake effect snow will kick in and last through Wednesday evening's commute. Snowfall totals could eclipse 8 inches in northern Erie, Niagara, Orleans and Genesee counties, according to the weather service. Friday night into Saturday morning looks to be the next chance for accumulating snow.

"Travel will be very hard to impossible, including during the commute on Tuesday and Wednesday", the weather service said.

We do get a break in our weather for Thursday, with breaks of sunshine. The models vary on the path of a low that will pass through the Great Lakes.

Weather conditions during this period will likely lead to snow-covered, slippery roads, especially in more rural areas.

A new low pressure system will move across CNY Monday night into Tuesday with widespread snow.

The National Weather Service says winter storm watches are in effect from Monday night into Wednesday morning for the region stretching from NY southwest corner to the Vermont border. But the break will be short-lived, as another, more potent system pulls into the Great Lakes region overnight Monday into Tuesday. Tug Hill and areas of Western New York could have more.
