The image you see here is from 8:52 a.m. from the NY Thruway Authority traffic cams near Batavia at interchange 48. You can see that a majority of the highway was still snow covered. A lot of this was due to the blowing and drifting of snow.

The storm system that dumped a couple inches of snow and brought strong gusty winds Sunday is exiting off the coast of Maine but we still have the strong winds with gust from 30 to 20 mph out of the west and even areas of lake effect snow. The blowing and drifting snow prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Winter Weather Advisory for most of western New York until 7pm Monday evening. Blowing snow and drifts will keep many area roads snow and iced covered. If you have to be out traveling, be cautious and slow your speeds.

We will also see lake effect snow showers off of Lake Ontario, most amounts are not going to be large, just 1 to 4 inches with 6 to 12 in more persistent bands near Lake Ontario in Wayne county. Things do relax and calm down overnight Monday into Tuesday.

The next storm brings snow Tuesday night before mixing and changing to rain during the day Wednesday.
