Lake snow warnings in effect for the counties east of Lake Ontario

Warnings go into effect late Wednesday

SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) - Lake snows will start to fire up during the day Wednesday.

Current indications are that the heaviest snowfall will be east of Lake Ontario, north of Syracuse.

The Tug Hill Plateau could once again be the sweet spot for the heaviest snow with the potential of 1-2 feet of snow by Friday morning.

Elsewhere in central New York there will be some snow, but the amounts will not be as significant.  Cold temperatures will combine with the snow to create slippery travel beginning late Wednesday.

Gusty winds of 15-25 mph will combine with heavily falling snow to produce whiteouts and zero visibility from Syracuse northward from late Wednesday through Thursday night.

Expect drastically changing weather and road conditions from the Syracuse area northward late Wednesday, lasting through Thursday night.

In addition to the snow, bitter cold air will settle into central New York, with air temperatures in the teens and single digits and wind chill temperatures below zero from Wednesday night through Friday morning.

It appears as though the heaviest snow will be over by Friday.  There may be a few flurries, but the main story by Friday will be the cold.
