WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - It’s the first day of December and it’s going to feel like it.

Lake effect snow is focusing mainly on the Tug Hill south of Watertown. A lake effect snow warning for Jefferson, Lewis, and Oswego counties will continue until 8 p.m. Places where snow is heaviest could see another 4 to 9 inches.

And then there’s the wind, which could blow snow and cause poor visibility and road conditions. The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office has issued a travel advisory until further notice.

A wind advisory for Jefferson and Oswego counties ends at 1 p.m. Winds will be from 30 to 40 mph with gusts up to 50 mph.

There’s also a lake shore flood warning until 4 p.m. for Jefferson and Lewis counties, mainly because of those high winds.

Highs on Thursday will be in the mid-30s, but the wind will make it feel much colder.
