Waking up to a dusting of snow covering roofs, car tops, but not leaves. Also waking up to this Special Weather Statement:
Special Weather Statement
Special Weather Statement in effect until 8:00 AM EST. Source: U.S. National Weather Service ...LAKE EFFECT SNOW WILL CONTINUE ACROSS HIGHER TERRAIN THIS MORNING...Lake effect rain and snow will continue inland from Lake Erie this morning. Mainly rain will occur near the Lake Erie shoreline, transitioning to snow over higher terrain. Additional snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches will occur through 8 am. While the most notable accumulations will be on grassy and elevated surfaces, untreated roads will be slush covered and slick. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination this morning. This includes the 219 from Ellicottville to North Boston. Since mainly rain is expected at lower elevations closer to the Lake Erie shoreline, the New York State Thruway will experience just wet surfaces this morning.
Photo below was captured at 7:30 am from the SLI North Cam. There was a little more snow coverage east of Perry Ave. (up the hill).
