If Friday's snowstorm wasn't enough, more snow is on the way. Now, the amounts will be less than they were on Friday, with most of us seeing 3 to 6 inches. But this storm packs a different kind of punch, winds will increase out of the west and northwest from 20 to 30 mph with possible gusts of 40 mph. This will cause blowing and drifting with potential whiteout conditions. This is especially true in the counties closest to Lake Erie.

Once the storm passes Sunday afternoon, cold arctic air arrives and the lake effect snow showers take over from Genesee, Wyoming and Livingston counties. People in these counties could see an additional 3 to 6 inches with lake effect snow bands Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. By Monday morning, winds will start to come out of the west-northwest, and lake effect will start to come off the southeastern shores of Lake Ontario. Orleans county over to Cayuga, including parts of Monroe and the city of Rochester could see some significant snow from snow bands that could set up off the lake.

With lake effect it is always tough to know where and who will see the most so keep it tuned in to this website , WROC News 8, and FOX Rochester. If you are going to be traveling here are a few links that might help you check on the conditions.
