Lake-effect snow may meddle as Bills play Colts

Wind chills will stay in the single digits all day with scattered lake effect flurries and light snow showers tomorrow.

A stronger wave will plow through later Monday evening and early on Tuesday, perhaps an inch or so of snow in the southern counties.

In terms of accumulation, the shifting bands actually work in favor of those who want to keep their shoveling to a minimum, as the snow spreads out over a larger area and puts a cap on heavier local totals.

In summary, those in the lake-effect belt focused more over Ashtabula and Geauga counties can expect moderate to heavy lake-effect snow at times Monday night through Wednesday. Up to a foot of snow is expected for Jefferson, Oswego, and Lewis counties, with the highest amounts - 15 inches or more - falling over the Tug Hill Plateau.

In the higher elevations of Vermont, New Hampshire and ME, up to a foot of snow is possible.

A Lake Effect Snow Warning beginning early Sunday means more accumulation is likely for northern Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties.

Several inches of lake snow is a distinct possibility Tuesday night into Wednesday across much of CNY, especially southeast of Lake Ontario, including the Eastern Finger Lakes region and Syracuse area.

Behind the storm will come some of the coldest air of the season so far.

Another Michigan sized area of snow will move across Michigan Monday and Monday night.

Temperatures on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday might not hit 30 degrees.

It's still bitterly cold Wednesday and Thursday with teens and 20s for temps.
