WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A blast of lake effect snow rolled through northern New York Wednesday afternoon, forcing schools to cancel activities and sports and throwing many evening events into doubt.

The snow was widespread, touching all three north county counties.
7 News chief weathercaster John Kubis said the band of lake effect snow will likely shift south of Watertown late Wednesday afternoon, and settle along Route 177 for a couple of hours before going further south to central New York.
The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office issued a travel advisory Tuesday night. “This means that caution is advised as hazardous driving conditions could be encountered due to blowing snow and snow covered roads,” the sheriff’s office noted in a statement.
Other weather watches and warnings include:
Thursday will be mostly cloudy in Jefferson County, a mix of clouds and sun in Lewis County, mostly sunny in much of St. Lawrence County.
