Snow is on the way

Some areas of Western New York will finally see some snow over the next day or so. 

The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Advisory for Northern Erie and Genesee Counties that begins at 1pm today and runs until 10pm tonight.  Meanwhile,  a Lake Effect Snow Warning goes into effect for Southern Erie, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and Wyoming Counties at 4pm this afternoon and runs until 10pm tomorrow night.

"The real area of concern is to the south," says National Weather Service Meteorologist Bob Hamilton. "That's where the lake effect snow is going to really set up in earnest tonight and continue into the day tomorrow. You're looking at snowfall down there averaging a foot in most areas, specifically from the Chautauqua Ridge just to the east. Buffalo metro area, probably an inch or less. The further north you go you'll probably end of with just flurries. Again, the heaviest stuff will be south of say Orchard Park and East Aurora."

Hamilton says the snow won't last long, with temperatures expected to warm up to the 50s by early next week with no additional snow in site for Christmas.
