A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from 4 p.m. today (Nov. 30) until 1 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 1), issued by the National Weather Service.

Lake effect snow expected with total snow accumulations of 4 to 7 inches in the most persistent lake snows across higher terrain. Winds gusting as high as 45 mph will produce extensive blowing and drifting snow in Wyoming, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Southern Erie counties.

Plan on snow covered and slippery roads. Areas of blowing snow will significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute today and the morning commute on Thursday.

Lake effect snow will fall in relatively narrow bands. If traveling, be prepared for rapidly changing road conditions and visibilities.


For all on-campus emergencies (police, fire, medical) contact University Police instead of 911!
