Lake-effect bands crank up for high terrain south of Buffalo

Lake-effect bands had dumped 3 to 5 inches of snow as of Sunday morning in the higher elevations of southern Erie County and the Southern Tier, the National Weather Service in Buffalo said.

The Weather Service predicted lake-effect snow will move into metro Buffalo around sunset with a mix of rain and flakes but with no real accumulation.

"Elevation did matter," Weather Service meteorologist Kirk Apffel said as he noted the towns that saw the most snow Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Some 3.2 inches had fallen in Holland and 3 inches in Boston as of around 7 a.m. Sunday. Five inches fell in the Wyoming County hamlet of Varysburg and 4.3 inches in Cattaraugus County's Persia.

In lower-lying areas – Jamestown in Chautauqua County, for example – no snow was measured as of Sunday morning, Apffel said.

The winter weather advisory for lake-effect snow in the high terrain of southern Erie and the Southern Tier counties was slated to continue until 1 p.m. Sunday.
