Weather Updated: Jan 30 - 8:23 PM
Issued by the National Weather Service
For Wyoming County, New York

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT UNTIL 10PM EST WED ...

LAKE EFFECT SNOW AND STRONG WINDS ARE CREATING BLIZZARD CONDITIONS THIS EVENING... 

Editor: I am bumping the balance of this story to the "read more" page because as of 11:15 pm, the forecast is not affecting the Silver Lake Basin. We have had no snow for Tuesday or Wednesday and minimal wind.



AT 8:15 PM MULTIPLE BANDS OF LAKE EFFECT SNOW ARE OSCILLATING DOWNWIND OF LAKE ERIE, THAT WHEN COMBINED WITH STRONG SOUTHWEST WINDS ARE CREATING BLIZZARD CONDITIONS. THE NORTHERN BAND OF SNOW IS ACROSS THE BUFFALO NORTHTOWNS AND TOWARDS NORTHERN GENESEE COUNTY, WHILE THE SECOND AND BROADER BAND OF SNOW IS STRETCHING FROM SILVER CREEK TO NORTH COLLINS AND ATTICA ON THE SOUTHERN FLANK, AND LACKAWANNA, LANCASTER AND ALEXANDER ON THE NORTHERN FLANK. FALLING SNOW COMBINED WITH BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW ARE CREATING VISIBILITIES NEAR ZERO. THESE BANDS OF SNOW ARE EXPECTED TO CONSOLIDATE INTO A SINGLE BAND OF SNOW JUST TO THE SOUTH OF BUFFALO AND BATAVIA THROUGH THE NIGHT. IN ADDITION AIR TEMPERATURES ARE VERY COLD, AROUND ZERO TO MINUS 5 THIS EVENING. STRONG WINDS ARE CREATING DANGEROUS WIND CHILL VALUES OF -25 TO -30 ACROSS THE REGION. THESE WIND CHILLS COULD CAUSE FROSTBITE ON EXPOSED SKIN IN AS LITTLE AS 15 TO 20 MINUTES. LOCATIONS IMPACTED INCLUDE... BUFFALO, CHEEKTOWAGA, WEST SENECA, NORTH TONAWANDA, CLARENCE, LACKAWANNA, BATAVIA, KENMORE, DEPEW, AMHERST, TONAWANDA, LANCASTER, HAMBURG, EAST AURORA, WILLIAMSVILLE, DARIEN LAKES STATE PARK, GRAND ISLAND, EVANS, ELMA AND BOSTON.
