A lake effect Snow Advisory Means Lake-effect snow is forecast
that will make travel difficult in some areas. Lake-effect snow
typically falls as narrow bands of heavy snow within a larger
area of lighter snowfall. Given the nature of lake effect snow...
visibilities can become reduced very rapidly... sometimes to near
zero over only a short distance. Plan on extra travel time
because conditions will require you to slow down. Stay tuned to
NOAA Weather Radio or your favorite source of weather information
for the latest updates. Additional details can also be found at...
