More lake-effect snow coming for upstate NY


"2-4" of snow accumulation is possible, though some areas could receive an excess of 4" due to heavier snowbands in the system.

Lake-effect snow showers Thursday will slowly shift into the primary snow belt as winds become more from the northwest, rather than more northerly in the morning. Lesser amounts, around 5 inches, are in the forecast for the Southtowns and Genesee county.

Other parts of the region are under a winter weather advisory, with 3 to 6 inches expected.
