LIVINGSTON COUNTY — Lake effect snow is hitting us hard and Geneseo Central School, as well as York Central School, are sending students home early.
According to news partner 13WHAM weather reporter Marty Snyder, those dreadful lake effect bands will hit us the hardest this evening.
Snyder is reporting that a Lake Effect Snow Advisory remains in effect for Livingston County through 4 a.m. Friday. However, most of the heaviest lake effect snow from this event will taper through this evening. For Livingston County, where the lake effect bands set up for the longest period of time, there is the potential for 4-6 inches of total accumulation by the time the snow tapers tonight. Conditions will be much worse to the west into northern Wyoming County, and along Route 20A. Travel into that area is discouraged today. Outside of the focused part of the lake effect band, accumulation amounts will remain much lower and temperatures through much of the remainder of the day will range in the 20s.
Geneseo Central School posted a message to the community via their Facebook Page. “Due to the inclement weather, students will be dismissed today at 11:15 AM,” says the post. “As of right now, the play is still on for tonight. All other after school activities, including parent meetings are cancelled.”
York Central School District posted a notice to their website announcing that they will be sending middle and high school students home at 1:45 p.m. After-school activities are cancelled, and the school’s ham dinner has been moved to tomorrow.
