ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB)–

UPDATE: The travel advisory has been lifted.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz is issuing a travel advisory for the county after a discussion with the Department of Public Works and Emergency Services.

“Driving conditions are rapidly deteriorating in central and southern Erie County due to 2-3″ rate of snowfall per hour and 35 MPH winds, dropping visibility to zero at times,” Poloncarz said.

The National Weather Service says a band of heavy lake effect snow will remain stationary through mid-morning across the southern half of the Buffalo metro area.

NWS says this will also remain south of a line from downtown to the airport.
