Deze die nou gaande is hoort bij dit verhaal>Second Round of Lake-Effect Snow Begins in Western New York
After a pause in the lake-effect snow on Wednesday, more bands of heavy snow will continue to pummel areas downwind of the Great Lakes, including northern and western New York through the end of the week. A weak disturbance that passed over the Great Lakes on Wednesday brought a general light snowfall to the region, but caused a lull in the heavy lake-effect snow. However, lake-effect snow re-energized Wednesday night and will continue into Friday. Areas that will be hit by heavy snow include western New York, east of Lake Ontario, including the Tug Hill Plateau and western and northern Michigan.
Some areas that were hit with 3-6 feet of snow on Tuesday are being hit again Thursday. This time the heaviest band of snow off of Lake Erie is centered a bit farther to the south, compared to Tuesday. However, there is some overlap. The redevelopment of these intense snow bands will mean more dangerous conditions and travel restrictions through the end of the week. According to AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams, "While the second round of lake-effect snow may be not be as long-lasting, nor as intense, winds may be much stronger this time.".
The bands of snow off of lakes Erie and Ontario will shift farther south than the episode from earlier this week. Heavy snow is likely to occur in parts of northwestern Pennsylvania, northeastern Ohio and between Watertown and Syracuse, New York Thursday night into Friday.High winds and powdery snow will lead to whiteouts and extensive blowing and drifting over the next couple of days.The combination of low temperatures, wind, snow and other atmospheric conditions will sendAccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures to near zero F at times.Even in areas where snow removal has taken place, intersections may be dangerous due to the high piles of snow at the corners and along sides of roads.

If you're in the Prairies or Ontario, there's a storm coming—and it might leave your weekend looking rather snowy.
The system will make its way across the Prairies before making it's way into Ontario.
As it travels across the country it will combine with a low pressure system from the United States and target northern Ontario.
The timing of it all
The even will start off this weekend and won't end till the middle of next week but will affect different regions at different times. Alberta is first up, being hit from Saturday to Sunday morning. Saskatchewan won't feel the effect until Saturday afternoon. Manitoba will feel the storm between Sunday and Monday. From Sunday night to Monday night the system will move into Northern Ontario before finally striking southern Ontario on Monday. It should stick around until Tuesday morning.
A little confused? This table should help you out.
REGION BEGINS ENDS
Alberta Saturday Sunday
Saskatchewan Saturday afternoon Sunday
Manitoba Sunday Monday
Northern Ontario Sunday night Monday night
Southern Ontario Monday Tuesday morning
The Prairies story
The story starts off in Alberta. An aptly named Alberta Clipper will form off the Rockies and bring snow to the province. The heaviest snow at the moment looks to remain north and flanking Edmonton. Poor visibility could become a serious issue in southeastern Alberta due to the gusty winds on Sunday morning. Models are suggesting Edmonton could see up to eight centimetres, Calgary up to two and the Grande Prairie area could get up to 15 cm.
Saskatchewan is next with the snow moving in Saturday afternoon. Be careful if you're on the roads because wind gusts of up to 70 km/h will lead to dangerous driving conditions due to drifting, blowing and falling snow. Prince Albert could see up to 12 cm while Regina will only get a little under five centimetres.
The final part of the Prairies story involves Manitoba where the system hits in the early hours of Sunday. Dangerous conditions can also be expected on the provinces roads with the Interlake region having more than 15 cm of snow.
The clipper strengthens
A key component to the system's travel beyond the Prairies is the fact that it's combining with a Texas low which will travel north from the southern U.S. This will give the storm an extra boost as it moves into Ontario.
Once the clipper combines with the low it will increase the amount of moisture available to the system as a whole. The snow will spread across the region on Sunday and continue through Monday.At first the precipitation will be a mix of rain and snow along the shores of Lake Superior but by Monday that should switch over to just snow. Strong winds are also expected in the region with wind speeds of up to 70 km/h in the forecast. For southern Ontario, periods of rain will begin Sunday night and Monday, along with mild temperature. this will cause a rapid snowmelt that could lead to localized flooding in areas hit the hardest by snow squalls this week. Wind speeds could reach 90 km/h near the Great Lakes.
