It’s mid-February, and the lakes remain open, so we all know what that can mean:

A return of lake-effect snow, at least in some parts of the region.

But we are all going to get hit with cold temperatures.

The National Weather Service has issued a lake-effect snow watch for Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties, from Saturday evening through late Sunday afternoon.

Forecasters are calling for possibly 6 inches or more in persistent snow bands during that time period.

The region is expected to see a blast of winter weather this weekend, with forecasters calling for at least a chance of snow showers through Sunday night, accompanied by cold temperatures.

Daytime highs should be in the 20s, with overnight lows expected to hit 15 degrees Friday, 10 degrees Saturday and 7 degrees Sunday.
