Winter weather travel advisory in effect

Mathew BarnettDec 30, 2016

Some scattered snow showers are still expected until 11 a.m., but that snow will switch over to rain as temperatures warm, according to the National Weather Service at State College.

"Total Lake Effect snow accumulations of 3-6" are expected in the most persistent bands, especially from near Auburn to northern Cortland County. Westerly winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 35 miles per hour are in the forecast issued by the National Weather Service.

High temperatures in the low 40's will keep snow from accumulating more than a coating or a half-inch.

The Pittsburgh area has already been hit with rain, snow and a wintry mix, but we're not done. According to the National Weather Service, near whiteout conditions are possible in the areas receiving the larger amounts of snowfall. Snow has fallen regularly since mid-November, including a couple of lake-effect storms.

The weather should clear up by nightfall, but you can expect more snow on Friday and Saturday nights.

Temperatures will remain below freezing for the day with wind chills in the teens.

The ball drops in downtown Buffalo ringing in the New Year.

The chance of showers will linger into Friday morning but New Year's Eve is forecast to be mostly sunny during the day with a high of 39 degrees. Highs will be in the upper-30s on Monday and Wednesday and in the 40s on Tuesday.
