Expect snowy, slow drive home; City travel advisory

Buffalo, NY – A Lake Effect Snow Warning is is effect for Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties.

The warning will remain posted until 6'o'clock Wednesday morning for those counties.

A Lake Effect snow advisory is posted by Wyoming County until 6'o'clock Wednesday morning.

In the City of Buffalo, the Mayor has issued a travel advisory. Citizens are being advised against any unnecessary travel.

WBFO'S Eileen Buckley talked with National Weather Service Meteorologist Bill Hibbert at the Airport Weather Station in Cheektowaga. Hibbert provides us with information on what to expect for the Tuesday afternoon drive home and just how much Lake Effect snow we will receive.

The slow moving system will produce several hours of moderate to heavy snowfall.

The West bound mainline 90 was closed briefly around 7'o'clock Tuesday morning at the 190 interchange because of an accident. But the accident was quickly removed and it reopened a short time later.

In addition to the snow, bitterly cold wind-chills below zero are in the forecast with temperatures not recovering until Wednesday afternoon.
