After a break in snowfall for most of Christmas Day, lake-effect snow developed late on Friday evening, throwing new buildup in parts of western New York.
Conditions worsened Friday evening through Saturday morning when the lake effect ribbon took shape. Areas normally affected by lake effect snow were initially between 4 and 8 inches at sunrise on Saturday morning.
As the lake effect tape continues to affect our region, the National Weather Service’s snow totals begin.
