More snow for western New York is on the way starting tonight and into tomorrow. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for tonight through Wednesday afternoon.

An area of low pressure will pass directly over Buffalo at that time, bringing with it , moderate snow tonight into Tuesday morning. The Tuesday morning commute will likely be slow especially close to the lake where the warm waters will enhance snowfall rates a bit.

Snow should ease in Buffalo and the Niagara Frontier after lunch Tuesday as winds shift out of the north. That wind will bring in cold, dry air but it will also lead to more lake effect in the Southern Tier and across Niagara and Orleans counties.This will cause blowing snow issued Tuesday afternoon and evening as winds gust to 40 mph..

That lake effect event may last into early Thursday.

More light snow is possible on Friday and into the weekend as temperatures warm to close to 40 degrees on Sunday. More cold air arrives next week.
