A band of heavy snow from Lake Erie will swing into Buffalo and part of the Niagara Peninsula late Friday night into Saturday.
Most of the time heavy lake-effect snow sets up over ski country and the South Towns, due to a prevailing northwesterly flow during cold outbreaks. However, once in a while the heavy stuff shifts into the city of Buffalo. This is likely to occur during the first part of the weekend.
As an Alberta Clipper storm approaches from the northwest, winds will flip around to the southwest either allowing a band of heavy snow to set up over the city or swing northward from the south.
While snowfall often varies tremendously during lake-effect snow and this case will be no exception, from 6 to 10 inches of snow is possible in the city before the band dissipates later Saturday.
Folks traveling or who have plans during this time around the city Saturday morning and midday should expect delays and disruptions to activities, due to local whiteout conditions.
A similar band of snow will shift northward along the eastern shore of Lake Ontario around the same time, affecting the area from the city of Watertown, N.Y., to Kingston, Ontario.
