NWS issues Winter Weather Advisory, Lake Effect Snow Warning for Wayne, Cayuga counties: What to expect?

Here comes the snow. If you live in the northern portion of the Finger Lakes region conditions will change rapidly through early-Monday. It won’t be as much snow as our neighbors in Western New York have seen, but it will be the first significant lake effect event of the season, which is already underway in parts of Oswego, Onondaga, and Cayuga counties.

The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning through Monday at 1 a.m. for Northern Cayuga County. A total of 7-14 inches of snow is expected.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Wayne County. A total of 4-8 inches of snow will be possible there. However, the snowfall will be limited to the northern portion of the county.


The driving force will be a gusty northwest wind, which will allow communities south of Lake Ontario – and along the Route 104 corridor more broadly – to get in the action.

Winds will gust as high as 45 mph throughout the day across the region. So, even if you’re not seeing any snow – gusty winds will remain in the forecast.

As is typically the case with lake effect snow – conditions can change rapidly. So, if you’re traveling through Cayuga, Oswego, Wayne, or Monroe counties along the 104 corridor over the next two days – use caution.
