Band of snow will affect Orleans this morning
The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a special weather statement saying that a band of moderate to heavy lake effect snow will affect the Buffalo metro area and the Northtowns, and then Orleans County, until 9:15 this morning.
The snow could fall at a rate of an inch an hour.
“Visibilities will drop quickly to a quarter of a mile or less in this band of lake effect snow,” the Weather Service said. “Anticipate roads to be snow covered, very slick and hazardous through the morning commute. Conditions can deteriorate rapidly in winter weather situations. Slow down and allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination.”
