There are a couple of advisories in place for New York State including a Lake Effect Snow warning for Upstate New York.
The National Weather Service is calling for between 4 and 9 inches of snow with a possible foot of snow in the higher elevations.
Most of the snow this time around is coming off Lake Ontario. Both Lake Ontario and Lake Erie remain warmer than normal which increases the risk of lake-effect snow.
The snow should be coming to an end in the Western part of the state by this afternoon. The winter weather advisory for Southern Erie, Cattaraugus, and Chautauqua counties will expire at 1 pm this afternoon.
The snow and wind will continue upstate much longer with the advisories lasting into the evening tonight.
Areas in the snow belts are still recovering from the historic snowstorm that hit the state a couple of weeks ago. Many places were measuring snow in feet, not inches. Hamburg got over 6 feet of snow during that storm.
The good news is that a major cold front will sweep across the area next week and will hopefully cool down the lakes which will help reduce the chance of lake-effect snow.
