Lake effect snow returns, 6 to 12 inches possible

After a lull Saturday, more lake effect snow is heading our way. Narrow bands of heavy lake snow will intensify Sunday afternoon.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Welch says the snow will arrive in the Southtowns during the Buffalo Bills game at New Era Field. The bands could stretch into South Buffalo and the central and eastern suburbs early this evening before heading back south.

Welch says accumulations will vary, depending on where you live. Totals will range from six to 12 inches in the most persistent snow.

Officially, there is  lake effect snow warning for northern Erie and Genesee Counties through 1am Monday and for Southern Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Wyoming Counties through 7am Monday.

The lake snow will end in ski country Monday morning.

But then a general snowfall is expected to sweep through Western New York that could affect travel Monday night into Tuesday morning.
