An unusually cold air mass will continue to feed a band of lake effect snow over the next few days. It may weaken at times, especially late today into the evening, and again later tomorrow, but it will intensify again each time. Although plenty of lake snow will favor metro Buffalo, it could drop south to the ski area on Thursday. A more widespread system brings widespread snow to the region on Friday, and then with the polar vortex over the Great Lakes, we expect a very cold start to the weekend. This pattern eases us into next week.
