I think the jackpot will be a bit further south with Mexico to you and then east to the Southern Tug/where I lived for a winter.

6 to 12 inches for Northern Onondaga county. Both NWS Offices are being pretty cautious about saying much for this region though, which is understandable.

I will continue to be reserved until I'm measuring lol The NWS has busted several times over the years with these big events east of Ontario.. Could wind up just to the south, either way good luck to all..

 In my opinion you are about in the most perfect spot.... Aside from higher elevations to your East.

GL to Wolf. If the Tug region is still a snow capital in another 20-25 years when I get to retirement age, I'm definitely either moving or at least buying a seasonal property somewhere up there to live in during the winter months. BGM is too synoptic dependent to satisfy my snow fix.

It's a fantastic recreational area, but the economy is severely depressed. It also requires lots of driving if you want to get anywhere...but that's not a problem for some people. Winter driving-wise, they do an incredible job keeping the roads clear.

BGM gives their first shot:

Then BUF's just for reference:

Looks like they're matching up pretty well (BGM maybe a little more conservative here). Curious why they are taking it just to 1 am Tuesday, as the NW flow will be in action then, adding to these totals. Maybe because this is the main show and also NW flow is so tough to predict.

That artic front with lake band pushing across south shore looks to be super intense. 

Sure does. The NWS offices have been tooting about this the past couple days.

Super short burst of cold air though. Highs go from single digits on Tuesday to low 30s on Wednesday. lol

Man, if I didn't know the bias of the HRW models, I would be psyched. They look great for N. Cuse weenie zone.

Still looking forward to getting whatever we can over the next couple days! Happy for you @wolfie09 and the southern Tug. It's been quite a long wait for a band like this to hit that zone.
