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.

(See a complete list of closings and delays here.)

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.
