308 PM EST Mon Jan 18 2021

...LAKE EFFECT SNOW WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 AM EST
TUESDAY...

* WHAT...Heavy lake effect snow occurring. Additional snow
  accumulations of 2 to 4 inches expected through this evening,
  primarily in far northeast Erie County.

* WHERE...Northern Erie and Southern Erie counties.

* WHEN...Until 1 AM EST Tuesday.

* IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous
  conditions could impact the evening commute.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...A convergent band of lake effect snow
  brought heavy snow to much of Erie County today, resulting in
  new snow amounts of 4 to 10 inches. This band continues to bring
  snow over portions of Erie County this afternoon but has waned
  slightly in intensity as it slowly slides north. The main window
  for snow will be over the next several hours and suspect that
  this band will be back over Lake Erie and into western New York
  by this evening. Snowfall rates up to one inch per hour are
  still possible with this band and will be an issue for
  Interstate 90 east of Erie and Interstate 86 through early this
  evening.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in
your vehicle in case of an emergency.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and Pennsylvania
