NYLON – A belt of lake-effect snow is expected to arrive in Livingston County Wednesday evening.
According to our news partners News10NBC, the short-lived but intense snowfall will present hazards for drivers mostly outside of the county, especially Monroe and Orleans Counties, where there are winter weather advisories.
“With frigid temperatures and significant snowfall on the way, I urge New Yorkers to take appropriate precautions now to stay safe,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo. “We are actively tracking these storms and will use every resource at our disposal to keep our roads clear and motorists out of harm’s way. I strongly urge New Yorkers in these regions to drive responsibly and be prepared.”
News10NBC’s Kevin Williams says that a Lake Erie snow band will cause problems for residents. The band will bring some snow to the Rochester area, but areas to the south and east of the city will be hit the hardest.
On top of that, wind and low temperatures will create slick roads.
Williams says that drivers traveling between Rochester and Buffalo will likely experience difficult and slow travel.
Total snowfall amounts from this band will be relatively small, but a brief period of heavier snow accompanied by gusty winds and bitter cold will produce difficult travel in some areas until the band moves south and out of the area later Wednesday evening.
