Warren County under lake effect snow warning until early Wednesday

If the National Weather Service is correct, the weather outside is going to be frightful.

Warren County is under a lake effect snow warning that went in effect early Monday morning through 1 a.m. Wednesday.

An advisory from the NWS projects six to 10 inches of “heavy lake effect snow” north of US 6 “and lesser amounts across the southern part of the county.”

The worst of it is projected for Monday night into Tuesday “when snow rates may reach 1” per hour for brief times within the strongest snow bands. Gusty winds will also lead to blowing and drifting snow.

“Travel could be very difficult,” the NWS adds. “The hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commutes, especially on Tuesday.”
