Here we go again!

Lake Effect Snow Watch in place for Southern Erie, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus County from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon. 

Everybody gets a round of snow starting late Tuesday into Wednesday. Expect a general inch of snow out of it.

Lake Effect Snow will begin to fire up off of Lake Erie Wednesday morning. The S.Tier hills, from Concord down to Ellicottville in Cattaraugus County, to atop the ridge in Chautauqua from Forestville to Mayville will be under the gun for Lake Effect Snow. Expect 2-4" through Wednesday evening.

If you live north of Concord and Boston in Southern Erie, wouldn't expect much except a few snow showers. 

Lake Effect Snow will continue through Thursday before winding down. Some areas could see over half a foot of snow when all is done. Gusty breeze, blowing snow and poor visibility at times will make travel difficult if you're traveling on the 219 or Thruway. Snow won't fall all at once. Very manageable and welcomed event for ski country.

If you hate the cold and snow, spring-like warmth is on the way for this weekend.
