* locations... Chautauqua and southern Erie counties.

* Timing... from late tonight through late Friday night.

* Accumulations... 3 to 6 inches Thursday... 7 to 13 inches
Thursday night... 5 to 10 inches Friday... and 3 to 6 inches

the most persistent lake snows.

* Winds... west 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.

* Visibilities... as low as a quarter mile at times.

* Impacts... heavy lake effect snow and areas of blowing snow will
lead to significant accumulations of snow on area roadways and
very poor visibilities at times... resulting in hazardous to
nearly impossible travel conditions at times within the most
intense portion of the band. If you must travel be prepared for
severe winter weather driving conditions with near zero
visibility and deep snow cover on roads. This includes the New
York state thruway from Hamburg to the New York/Pennsylvania
state line.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

In lake effect snow the weather can vary from locally heavy snow
in narrow bands to clear skies just a few miles away. If you will
be traveling across the region be prepared for rapid changes in
Road and visibility conditions.

If you lose power and plan on running a generator... make sure
that the generator is located outdoors and is properly
ventilated. Space heaters should also be properly ventilated and
used only if they are operating properly. Make sure snow does not
block exhausts and fresh air intakes for high efficiency furnaces
and water heaters.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or your favorite source of
weather information for the latest updates. Additional details
