A band of intense snow, strong winds and dangerous travel conditions will pivot across the Finger Lakes this afternoon. Lake effect snow is likely behind the squall as cold air rushes south.

Over the next few hours, the squall- which shows up nicely on radar as the bright green band pictured above.

This band will pivot eastward through the afternoon, with the southern parts moving east quicker than the northern parts. By this evening, it should be reoriented more north-to-south over the I-81 corridor.

Cold air is already moving in behind the squall line, producing widespread lake effect snow off of the Upper Great Lakes. I saw a picture from northern Indiana of complete white out conditions- that is what is coming here tonight and Sunday.

Please continue to be safe and spread the word. Also, please continue to vote for me in the Fed Ex Small Business Grant Contest so i can continue and enhance my services to keep you safe!
