BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The southern tier continues to see areas of heavy lake effect snow. As much a an inch per hour reported as well as some thundersnow. The Lake Effect Snow Warning for Cattarauguas and Chautauqua Counties will remain in place until 7AM Monday. Localized heavy snow in this area can bring totals to 5-10+ inches. This snow band will dissolve overnight but there is a possibility for blowing snow in open areas. Expect covered roadways for the morning drive.

The Winter Weather Advisory has been canceled for all parts of WNY but remains for northern PA. Another band of snow could move in as the winds shift from the north. This could bring a LES snow band starting over the northern counties then moving south over the metro area around 2AM. By 6AM that band will have mostly dissipated. Still expect a slick and slow commute.

A few passing snow showers are possible through Monday morning. The next line of snow showers will return over the Cattarauguas and Chautauqua Counties in the early afternoon. That will shift north over southern Erie County around 5PM making for a snowy drive home. The snow becomes a bit more scattered overnight. The northern most towns bordering Lake Ontario will also see snow returning around 5PM.

Early Tuesday the snow returns and eventually temps will turn that to rain before it completely dissipates in the afternoon.
