On Deb -- and AccuWeather meteorologist Bob -- It is 510 here at WB EN and good afternoon I'm Tim Wenger thanks Brian and -- over in the traffic center. We've got -- -- -- -- hands for a lot of folks this is like yesterday but it's in kind of a more populated area where this lake effect snow is really kind of hammering. Real finite and targeted area it just happens to be that real populated area where. A lot of you are out -- driving right now trying to get for the most part home from work and it's really messing things up. In the area of the threw away the 19 Indian outside our window here in Amherst it's no one pretty. Steadily right now salute the 290. Is going to be a slow go and -- will be the traffic to. Alan but will continue to. Check things throughout the afternoon -- over there in the traffic center right now Alan. What do we got out there. And you know it's a bad night when Allen runs out of music to do the traffic it's bad and you know again if you're listening up in Niagara Falls in -- down in spring -- maybe. You wondering what all the fuss is about well that's who we are wondering yesterday afternoon. It's a mess around here here's the WB and AccuWeather forecast as best as weakens an outsized things where you lake effect snow warning that continues. For us here in this area till 5 o'clock tomorrow morning it's going to be a tough drive it already is. Those late flurries and squalls around the metro area -- again inching south maybe three to six inches around these parts. Tomorrow a little bit better partly cloudy and cold. And looks like a high temperature of about 24 degrees we've got a winter weather advisory added to the mix for Saturday early until Sunday early. Up for general snowfall amount lake effect snow right now at the airport nineteen degrees and it all feels like five unit and into this it's not. Anywhere near the freezing mark we are well below that and we are cold out there so these pretty good wind chill again. It feels like five northern edge of that snow seems to be right a little bit north of us in Amherst -- southern edge. Seems to be down on the south side of Cheektowaga right now we get some tech texts that have come in here. One that just told me that -- transit roads south of Como so south of that area in the Lancaster area. Seems to be fine right now -- port is fine so just kind of in between there that's where the masses and unfortunately that is where. A lot of you. Are driving to the phones we go at 8030930. And star 930 this is ahead. Ed you're on WB -- what's up. Hello ahead. One more time for -- Head's not there and let's move up to Michelle hey Michelle -- on WB and tell you where you are what it's like. I don't know the from Dave and I make it's right now okay do you slept. That the gallery Ramallah about 430 Walter and debated -- -- -- -- -- optical with a truly know McClintock of art in my. Took a vote for a group would be even worse. It and it was it took me about a half hour to get to count as a child I'm only down by. Would stop and go -- for the whole way I didn't get a vote ten miles an hour excellent -- William street what but it William street exit from Walden is to start. It's it appeared to be cleared up physical they got a little bit better -- -- it stopped but it. I mean -- was better and people sevens beaten up. About fifteen miles per hour. Go in the other direction coming out the 19 meter hit ninety. They were completely stops that -- Glazer Kaiser's total it up to first pick in the south didn't it. It actually. Appeared -- with decent but it. The united going in both directions. On the mainland section homeless and street back to -- was just stop and go vote to election. Okay Dave thank you very much appreciate the update enemy and what he says is true that that south and the the snow band right now as I look on radar and in refreshing the screen in front of me does look like it's up into Cheektowaga now so maybe the airports get -- at this point. In then it's moving a little bit further north it's not all the way up the block port though it's it's indeed the Amherst East Amherst -- -- area right now. So the south towns getting a reprieve right now the north -- -- north -- Upton and Niagara Falls lock forward. They haven't gotten any yet they may not get any at all but time will tell. Later tonight things will settle. Further on down to this self let's move along on the phones right now this is done. I'm WB and he'd done how you doing where area. I'm not too bad considering stuck in traffic -- I have otherworldly and William Welsh right by ETC north. I can arm heading westbound right now like to tell you really eastbound is an absolute parking lot there's a car that's next to me that I -- -- seen move. In five minutes. Of course that means that moved inside that you are. So I'm not recommending -- either way. Are attached over transit that was awful. I can't imagine you're gonna make any time whatsoever taking transit. And from what I hear unions just as bad if not worse. Yeah we're getting now reports already that union and trans that I wouldn't even if you're not on them if you're on and I'm sorry it's going to be slow go but. If you're not don't go there I would just continue you do the right thing by trying to you know. Move east -- west -- morally you're right near us and it's on pretty good I know that. I tried but I have been sitting at the slightly out uses this happens I'm I've missed the green light. And I'm less than 200 yards away from. Sorry Don be patient and be careful I appreciate the call thank you. -- eight yet that I don't know that the the best advice I can give you is. When your stock in this city as I am so often. You know -- he disconnect kind of relax and forget about everything else and just do what you gotta do but I find. That if you're trying to go south or north that the easiest way in gridlock. Is to go east or west to the point that -- something is moving north or south and don't pick. Transit don't -- union and don't pick Harlem that's another trouble spot. That I found moving from south to north the north to south that never really tends to help -- around WB -- hey -- where are you and what is it like. Main -- the way west problems just as you can about the gallery to drive. Walton ramps and it's been steady and what university heights area I came up Cleveland drive. Elected and not try Harlem at -- like it was. We really slow down on a true way Cleveland. And we're going five maybe ten miles an hour. No just continue to follow real steadily. But the traffic never stopped were expected to slow creep but you continue to -- OK -- moving is better than not moving have been -- that you know when you're moving against. That's better looking for that south edge of the snow -- -- -- -- the galleria mall it's still snowing pretty good. Document -- pretty well here out. OK hey Jim thanks for the call on the update I appreciate it and be safe out there on the New York State -- let's go to John. John you're on WB yen where are you what's it like there. I am -- Harlem world Charlie solved and Iowa. Home people -- at -- oral walls and Harlem. Six or are right here I am -- just on the lock arms already there. A light of where street. And -- I what was -- should be mindful that people are leaving little space. In between the next vehicle. Well just barely and there are people are we at states that late stopped just is that -- -- -- a -- slightly. Our international side battle it -- probable or what at -- says there'll probably in -- -- so now. I try to leave space idols will. So you're here are you near Clinton now. I'm coming up there's only like just before Clinton to us or is it is or is it still snowing there. It's actually like our New Orleans next -- trying to call it almost -- this is at Rochester. And I suspect a lot of people are what you're doing in transit although. -- -- are. Okay John thank you very much and hopefully he'll be move consumed with the snow let not to the south -- so looks like the south side of the snow right now the in this southern edge or ledge of this lake effect band. Appears to be right around that Clinton street area. So that would stretch you know from being in the draw a line and Clinton street from the city outward into the west Seneca area of the northern -- appears to be. Appear in Amherst and -- Wanda and it's pretty intense in between that's a short distance but unfortunately that short distance includes. The New York State -- way -- 290 and you know whole mass of other roads. Good advice so we're getting from everyone is transit. Union and now Harlem there just not good alternate routes just got a text from someone. Allen will be interest in this the I ninety west of parking lot by Crittenton. And east over in that direction is moving. And about twenty miles an hour 520 now at WB and traffic and weather together every ten minutes into traffic command and Alan. And WB and AccuWeather really quite simple lake effect snow is moved into the metro buffalo and the immediate north towns area the east towns. The galleria mall area all of -- getting some pretty intense lake effect snow right now. Not zero visibility here in Amherst that it's not good pretty heavy snow and obviously if you're on the roads at -- everybody. Down right now we've got a couple of inches on the ground here this snow will begin to settle back southward over night. The warning remains in place the lake snow warning until 5 o'clock. Tomorrow morning. And the overnight low gonna be about seventeen degrees we're not far from that right now nineteen degrees and it feels like five. And if you don't like -- you like the weekend because now they've issued a winter weather advisory for this coming Saturday and Sunday for all of us. I'm not for lake effect snow but for. A general snowfall. That is gonna come into. The area so. It's not over yet and good news though you'd like to skiers snowboarders do anything outside in the snow snow shoe.

No because you're gonna to get out of the car if you're in in the middle of it Joseph beamer there -- some. Relaxing Christmas music for you if you're stuck in traffic out there as so many of you are. Here's some good news is I kind of look at this live radar picture that band is narrowing. To some degree right now and there really is from the northern edge of the Amherst down to. Of the south side of -- be Cheektowaga. Right now on that it extends -- -- the New York State through Lleyton kind of draw a straight line to the east. And watch the snow over the air the bad news is I guess if you're gonna head to the south -- later it's all gonna settle back down. Southward during the overnight hours and more snow is gonna get down there but nonetheless appear in it right now it doesn't matter what it's like north or south. Here and it and it's a -- and part of downtown buffalo has been a little bit nasty. For the afternoon and one of our engineers Stan Hixon is on the line Sammy got the arena. Yeah it's -- I was down here earlier -- you know kit 98 point our sister station there has their kids that badge on Nigerian upside down not for -- -- afternoon shell and not. We're getting a pretty good out here man.

Gridlocked traffic on your I haven't gone more than probably ten miles an -- that I left the arena at five so are we outside street side here I'm probably not all I say about a mile from the arena at that I could all sorts old operator idea. Aren't hoping you drive one of those big giant station -- Under our report on -- Well at least it's heavy right.

It's engineer Sam hicks and he's it's gonna try to get on Broadway unfortunately -- he's gonna had raped you know along parallel with the snow but. Probably will be better probably -- the -- 190s so you don't know -- telling you not to go downtown. If you're if you're going to kiss the statue you're going -- common -- thing. We had a guy earlier caller is going to be wrapping your game somewhere in downtown buffalo. No insane don't do it just -- taking a lot of extra time and I think I think if you're lucky if you're event lasts a couple of hours. You know you'll be okay by the time the event is over but if you're in it now. It's just not pleasant. Michael computer wondering what all of the fuss was about with the weather earlier well you know we threw money here India and send them home and now he's stuck on the 290s sitting in traffic so. Sorry to hear that Michael. That -- that that's why we're here right now because of the mass that is indeed out there on the roads like Iran Iran your. Where on Broadway somewhere around here on WB and. Then. -- went on Broadway and now as Broadway. Let's hear. Your friends there with the idea to go to Broadway is really great okay good and it took me half an -- in the corner of copper and Delaware. At a corner of oak street. Sycamore -- what I got to -- sick or you could actually roll it. Okay where you going around returned to get. All I'm trying to. Cheektowaga right now -- Portman -- -- everything seems to be pretty passable. Okay how all the snow there right now is it's still snowing around. This really tapered off what they got to. Run gallery mall area when I was brought it brought -- union it really started taper off the hotel and just. -- Okay yet rounded that the radar does look like it looks like it's breaking up -- you know right along that south edge of Cheektowaga and the bad news is I guess of Europe on the 29. OK let's a move on to Nancy now. Nancy on WB and took you a long time didn't -- Yes that it took me an hour and ten minutes to get I mean transcript plans. -- down here on each side -- your parents. Okay see we're going to you're going what was would probably normally be against the traffic grain and it took you that line. Well. Were early was backed out really really bad. And I was just trying to get the Genesee street and I got the Genesee street. It was a little bit better -- on. OK still snow and there are now. Oh yes I went through like a blizzard. To report timed it just lacked a little bit that you really couldn't see that while. Yeah this this city still get that I can tell you that. The rate and that the heart of that that band crosses right off the lake and crosses over the head downtown section. After north buffalo so Nancy I'm glad you made and I'm sorry it took so long but I do appreciate the call. And it just tell -- drives say about the expression -- beach club. He had the trucks they don't realize when they go with them by how much effect they have on your car. Let's slipped into Mike here before we go to traffic and weather together might guys at least you were on the union road where you know Mike. I'm not yeah. I I would I left work at 4 o'clock. It orally and I -- union -- in that earlier in the outback and I spent an hour one minute problem. Union were related to. Union and -- -- I think like I -- Went yeah well you know it clear up when he but it nonunion. He -- yet. But. Thought about. All I'm -- chat it up pretty much stopped more. Okay Mike thank you appreciate the update. Very derisive. The rest of your way. Again I can't stress -- enough if your candidate really is bad but the northern entry about to -- looks like it's the north side of Amherst and then head down and south due to lobby area looks like that's where that. Areas breaking up and just draw a line due east that's where the snow is it is 540 now it WB and the and time to check traffic and weather together on the tends Allen it's slower rate everywhere everywhere. -- -- The WB EN AccuWeather really quite simply this lake effect snow will continue throughout the afternoon and early evening drive time and especially around the buffalo metro area and to the east right now. If you're way up north for your way down throughout the year I wonder what the fuss is about it's not too bad sometimes you get a little bit later when all is said and done three to six inches looks like. About the snowfall amount going to be cold too were at nineteen now. And it feels like five degrees. Get a little bit of a respite tomorrow during the day and then Saturday more of a general snowfall moves in and we have winter weather advisory for Saturday during the day six day. On the Sunday at six save the right now the mass is in the metro and the immediate eastern area. Of the metropolitan areas of -- downtown buffalo and then moving eastward to Kensington expressway the 19 he -- a downtown buffalo. The 33. Well let's Kensington and then the of the -- in between Williams will hold down to a Cheektowaga. That really is the heart of it and then if you're if you're leading the region and going over to Rochester. Not a fund drive all the way up into Rochester you're getting. Lake effect snow. And here's the guy threw out of the studio and now he stuck out there in traffic Michael computer go back on WBM likely should've just stayed. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- All right here. Yeah where -- you Michael what's it like. I just on 7989. -- 33. I'm sitting here. But in politely debate. Which claim that are didn't stop ago. Q how satisfying it is to me to know that some analysis stock where I normally would be right now and it's not -- Not now I know white like Robert -- had yet I think there's little people tricked you better play. I'll tell you this though once you pass I bet the like the gallery area if you if you're lucky enough to get that far I think you'll be okay and in it'll start to open up. But I'm just coming under the Walden avenue. Exhibit BW I mean at Democrats and maybe you're right about that couple hundred yards maybe -- -- Is it start and is it's still snowing right where you are Michael. It'd be an impact. About 400 -- then he can't be a great doctors don't blow. Are to be careful because they need you here tomorrow. All right -- drive safely Michael computer though he stuck in the traffic out on the New York State through a time to get another call before a break here we'll go to Dave on Broadway debut on WBE and -- on Broadway. -- actually no I'm almost -- -- wrote that I found out that these 45 minutes to -- -- Al. But it doesn't look like any registered -- not brought itself. While at all. So ours are starting to slide it. Into each other -- a -- signal lights. But there -- out like she could -- be Cheektowaga orders there's actually. Pretty defiant lanes and there's a lot -- snow coming out. Well that's good news it's just gonna take some time do you know let all that congestion. Out of there -- on sorry -- stuck in a but thanks for the update appreciate -- -- our drive safely sir and -- yeah you know. It will just all the sudden get better but it doesn't help if you're sitting in right now -- you've been behind the wheel for. You know whatever an hour an hour and a half we're hearing here I think is the longest here's the latest. Statement that the weather service has put out about -- band of snow. It's of heavy lake band it'll continue to gradually lift northward impacting. Us here in northern Erie also of Genesee counties through the evening snowfall rates. Of one to two inches an hour. More likely in some spots along -- blowing and drifting. Significantly reduced visibility is we're hearing about that seeing that. On the snow accumulating on roads pretty quickly is we're hearing from folks as well. Specific locations are gonna continue to be affected the metro buffalo area -- more Williams Bill Harris who glamorous clearance Lancaster Cheektowaga. So south -- your OK and the far north challenger okay. The right now in the the center of the metro buffalo area. It is amassed more of your phone calls and traffic and weather together all coming up next 546. Net WB -- WB EN AccuWeather the snow continues in a very targeted metropolitan. Buffalo and eastern suburbs area. About one to two inches an hour we get a few here in Amherst all falling at the wrong time this will continue through the evening hours before subsiding. In settling a little bit further down to the south being cold overnight Korea then tomorrow a little bit of a respite and Saturday some general snowfall. Is in the forecast with a winter weather advisory nineteen degrees right now it feels like five so on top of -- all. It is really darn cold I'm looking and all the cameras Allen is right now. And really in that zone where it's bad it hits bad and the traffic is bad of snow was bad. But man you grew up north to like Niagara Falls no problem at all. And way down to the south of looks. OK. So it's -- in that middle zone via metro area and fortunately where everyone is right now it's -- -- text us at 3930. Tell us it took -- 75 minutes to get from. The falls which was clear to buffalo state. The highway ninety was -- pretty much to stand still didn't go over ten miles an hour wants. So that was a mass someone wanted to know if it's gonna go as far north as Niagara Falls I don't think so. As I look at the radar right now the northern -- still seems to be around that time of one -- Amherst area and it's not moved any further. To the north. I'm not the meteorologist but I don't think. Niagara Falls is gonna see it. All that badly let's go back to the phones before we go to the top of the hour and all of the latest with Brian -- around ski over in the newsroom and another update.
