Weather: Lake effect for some, nothing for others

Credit WXXI

Lake-effect snow squalls are expected to persist tonight with local snowfall amounts of 15 centimetres expected in the heaviest snow squalls.

The National Weather Service has issued winter storm watches for locations immediately east and southeast of Lake Erie in western NY, including Buffalo. Jackson today could see an inch or two of snow.

"It will stay in place for the next few hours and then make its way to the Southtowns after dark", Zaff said. The lakes will enhance some of the snow up north, but we think there is potential for a coating to an inch over about 50% of the state on more insulated surfaces. "It will be one semi-continuous band between now and Friday".

According to the warning for Almaguin, issued at 8:25 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 5, and updated at 3:14 p.m. on Wednesday, snow squalls are expected. Lake effect from Lake Ontario might dump significant snow in northern Herkimer and Hamilton counties as well as Jefferson and Lewis counties.

There's a chance of snow showers each day Saturday through Tuesday.

Lake snow continues today mainly east and northeast of Lake Ontario. This is not a big snow accumulation event, but the chances of snow look better.

There are also chances for snow in other parts of the East this week, though a major storm is not in the forecast at this time.

Locations from the coastal mid-Atlantic to parts of eastern New England, however, could see snow or a rain/snow mix Friday into Saturday. This is not unusual since those cities typically see their first measurable snow from the end of November to mid-December. If we include areas that just see snowflakes through the day, coverage of this event can increase to 70%.

Wednesday night: Partly cloudy skies early will give way to cloudy skies late.
