BUFFALO, N.Y. — The strong area of low pressure that brought heavy snow Tuesday night will continue to lift to out of the Northeast, but westerly lake winds could allow for a few lake effect snow showers Wednesday morning and afternoon.
Expect slippery and snowy roads anywhere in Western New York Wednesday morning with road conditions remaining wet, but gradually getting better. Snow totals for the region range from just two inches to eight down in the Chautauqua Ridge.
Even once the snow stops, wind will be a factor. A sharp westerly breeze will be sustained at 10 to 20 mph on Wednesday with gusts to 40 mph near the water. Gusts to 35 mph are still possible on Thursday.
And while we cant rule out a few flakes Wednesday afternoon, the heaviest snow will be done for and the sky will begin to clear. Could even see some sunshine before it sets.
