We're in the middle of a long duration snow event in Upstate New York.  The storm that's driving the snow in the local area is a nor'easter to our east.  Really heavy snow is bringing feet of snow to Southeastern New England Tuesday along with strong winds and whiteout conditions.  Blizzard warnings are in effect along the coast. 

Going forward, snow is expected to fall steady but generally light Tuesday tonight, with most areas picking up 1-3" of accumulation.  The storm arcs in from the east on Wednesday, creating something called lake enhanced snowfall.  Lake enhanced snow is when snow falls heavier due to the process of lake effect snow.  We call it lake enhanced snow because it would fall regardless of the lakes, but the heaviest snow falls closer to the lake shore.  We're thinking the heaviest snow falls north and west of Utica Wednesday afternoon.  Here's a look at the snowfall forecast for Wednesday during the day:

Additional snow is expected Wednesday night and Thursday before this weather system comes to an end.  Colder weather will follow as we head into the weekend.
