Saturday...
... Wind chill warning remains in effect from 5 am Saturday to
10 am EST Sunday...

* locations... Oswego County.

* Timing... the lake effect snow warning is in effect through
early Saturday morning. The wind chill warning is in effect
from late tonight through late Sunday morning.

* Accumulations... 4 to 7 inches tonight and 1 to 3 inches

* Impacts... lake effect snow and blowing snow will result in
difficult travel at times through early Saturday with snow
covered roads and greatly reduced visibilities. In addition...
wind chills and temperatures will reach dangerously cold
levels. The frigid conditions could result in frozen pipes...
and will quickly lead to frostbite and hypothermia if you are
not properly dressed.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A wind chill warning is issued when a strong wind will combine
with cold temperatures to create dangerously cold conditions for
exposed skin. The wind will make it feel like it is 25 degrees
below zero or colder for several hours. Those planning to venture
outdoors should use common sense and dress warmly.

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.

Report snow accumulation to the National Weather Service in
Buffalo by sending an email to bufstorm.Report@noaa.Gov... posting
to the NWS Buffalo facebook Page... or tweet... using the hashtag
bufwx
