After waking up this morning to a layer of fresh, sparkling snow, residents of Buffalo and points south can expect another dose of lake-effect snow this evening.

An inch of snow, from a general snowfall, was recorded this morning at the National Weather Service office at Buffalo Niagara International Airport, according to meteorologist Dan Kelly.

Morning rush-hour traffic into Buffalo continues to be stop and go, as motorists navigate snow-covered roads, as well as detours caused by a water main break in the vicinity of Oak and Eagle streets.

After a mostly cloudy day, with high temperatures reaching the upper 20s, some lake-effect snow is expected to develop in Buffalo after 8 p.m. today and shift south, Kelly said.

The metro area could receive between 2 and 4 inches of snow before the band shifts south to southern Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Wyoming counties, where 5 to 8 inches is forecast through tomorrow. A lake-effect snow advisory for ski country goes into effect at 9 p.m. today, through 4 p.m. Wednesday.
