The National Weather Service in Burlington has issued a lake

amounts possible.

* Maximum snowfall rate... up to 1 inch per hour... mainly Friday
evening through midnight.

* Timing... a band of lake effect snow showers will move into the
Saint Lawrence valley Friday morning and continue to affect the
area through Friday evening. Dangerously low wind chills for the
entire weekend.

* Impacts... difficult travel due to moderate snowfall accumulating

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A lake effect Snow Advisory Means Lake-effect snow is forecast
that will make travel difficult in some areas. Lake-effect snow
showers typically align themselves in bands and will likely be
intense enough to drop several inches in localized areas. Use
caution when traveling.

A wind chill watch means the there is the potential for a
combination of very cold air and strong winds to create
dangerously low wind chill values. Monitor the latest forecasts
and warnings for updates on this situation.
