Cold and wind entering picture Monday morning

With heavier snow now pushing east, cold air and gust winds are starting to take over.
With heavier snow now pushing east, cold air and gust winds are starting to take over.

Winds are gusting to 30mph over western New York on the back side of the low pressure, which is located over northwest Pennsylvania now.

Steady moderate to heavy snow is moving east out of the Finger Lakes, but flurries and some heavier bursts of snow will continue into the afternoon.

The gusty winds will also create areas of blowing and drifting snow, not to mention subzero wind chills as temperatures fall back int the single digits.

Travel will remain difficult due to the blowing and drifting snow and the added challenge road crews face when the temperature  drops and the normal road clearing methods are less effective.

How much snow do you have so far?

    Just came in from clearing the drive, 6″ of snow and a few flakes drifting about, mostly coming off the trees as the wind has begun to pick up.

    We have about a foot here on 14A just a mile up from 5 & 20 🙂 Mind you, the wind has done an excellent job of clearing most of my driveway!
