Winter weather travel advisory in effect for this evening.

Lake effect snow squalls will continue to affect the area into the evening. Under the snow squall bands, visibility will be significantly reduced due to heavy snow and local blowing snow.

These bands will shift with time over the area which will limit snowfall amounts in a given location. Total accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are expected by late this evening, with locally higher amounts possible.

Difficult winter travel conditions are expected, especially during the evening commute.
