WKBW — Several municipalities issued travel advisories Monday due to severe winter weather.

Both Lockport and Niagara Falls issued a travel ban for drivers early on Monday. As of the evening, the travel advisory in Niagara County has been lifted, but drivers are urged to continue to use caution.

In an updated release Monday evening, Niagara Falls announced the ban was lifted and is now a travel advisory.

“Throughout the rest of the evening If you do not need to travel, please stay home so our crews can continue to work on clearing the streets," said Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino. The release says plows will now begin treating residential streets and the alternate parking restrictions have been suspended for the evening.

The City of North Tonawanda also issued a travel ban Monday. North Tonawanda Police tweeted that the ban is in effect until 6:00 p.m.

The City of Buffalo, Amherst and the Town of Tonawanda all issued travel advisories Monday morning. The advisories in Amherst and the Town of Tonawanda have since expired.
