Buffalo, NY — Winter Weather Advisories continue for the Southern Tier and northern Pennsylvania through Friday morning.

A band of lake effect will continue to move through the Southern Tier and northern PA through midnight Thursday into Friday. Snowfall rates may reach 2 inches per hour. Fortunately the band of snow is moving along quickly and will not cause long periods of disruptive weather. An additional 1 to 3 inches is possible in this area.

The heaviest snow is over for the Niagara Frontier, Genesee Valley and Southtowns. This includes the Buffalo metro area. A few scattered snow showers are possible in these areas overnight and into Friday morning, but minimal accumulation is expected.

You can track the snow using Storm Team 2's radar here.

Winds will slowly weaken overnight but areas of blowing and drifting are still possible, especially south of Buffalo.
