The National Weather Service said a snow squall will affect a line from near Fort Niagara State Park to Lakeside Beach State Park until 1:45 p.m.

The squall will affect parts of Orleans, Niagara, northwestern Genesee and northwestern Monroe counties.

“Visibilities will drop quickly to a quarter of a mile in this squall,” the Weather Service said. “Conditions can deteriorate rapidly in winter weather situations. Be prepared for snow or ice covered roads. Slow down and allow extra time when traveling.”
