Statement as of 9:08 PM EST on December 08, 2016

Expires 6:00 AM EST on December 09, 2016


... Lake effect snow warning remains in effect until 6 am EST
Friday...

* locations... Jefferson and Lewis counties. Greatest amounts
across higher terrain of the Tug Hill plateau.

* Timing... through late tonight.

* Accumulations... additional 5 to 10 inches overnight in
persistent bands.

* Winds... west 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph producing
blowing and drifting snow.

* Visibilities... less than a quarter mile at times.

* Impacts... heavy lake effect snow and areas of blowing snow
will lead to significant accumulations of snow on area
roadways and very poor visibilities at times... resulting in
hazardous to nearly impossible travel conditions at times
within the most intense portion of the band. If you must
travel be prepared for severe winter driving conditions with
near zero visibility and deep snow cover on roads. This
includes Interstate 81 from Adams to the Oswego County line.

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.

Report snow accumulation to the National Weather Service in
Buffalo by sending an email to bufstorm.Report@noaa.Gov... posting
to the NWS Buffalo facebook Page... or tweet... using the hashtag
