Some of the heavier snow bands may produce an additional 6″ of accumulation. Winter Storm Warnings are in effect from near Cleveland to Buffalo.
As a low pressure center spins slowly through eastern Canada, the cold wind flow across the Great Lakes will create additional snow bands. As the low shifts out of the region this weekend, the snow showers will come to an end.
