    Puff of Snow for Pennsylvania, New York Sunday

    A weak storm system was spread a swath of light snow and flurries across portions of western and northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and northwestern New England during Sunday.

    In most areas, the snow produced by the storm itself will merely dust the ground in a few locations. However, a few places can receive a bit more.

    Motorists are urged to travel with care as many roads have not yet been treated for wintry precipitation. Even a light coating of snow can quickly make roads slippery.

    The snow will affect portions of I-79, I-80, I-81, I-86, I-90 and I-99 for a time on Sunday. This particular snow will not reach the I-95 corridor with any consequences.

    Earlier this weekend, Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski echoed Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams' concern that lake effect could enhance the snow around Buffalo, N.Y., during Sunday.

    As winds flipped around to the southwest, a band of lake-effect snow moved into the city with accumulating snow.

    This New York State Thruway webcam is located just south of Buffalo, N.Y. near West Seneca.

    Lake-effect snow has been affecting areas downwind of the Great Lakes this weekend, prior to the weak storm's arrival. Some of the snow belts have received between 3 and 6 inches of snow, but accumulations have been lower in most places, and slightly higher in northern Michigan and parts of New York state.

    The bands of lake-effect snow will diminish Sunday night.

    A storm dipping into the Southern states on Monday will bring a swath of accumulating snow to part of the mid-Atlantic, New England and Ohio Valley spanning Monday night into Tuesday night.
