WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - An intense lake effect snow band is moving south into the Watertown area. It will produce snowfall rates of 2-3 inches per hour, maybe as much as 4″ an hour.

There is still a travel ban in effect in Jefferson County, updated at 4:30pm.. Travel bans in St. Lawrence County and Lewis County have been lifted.

The lake effect snow will sit over Watertown, Fort Drum, Carthage, Harrisville, Copenhagen and Adams Center/Adams for much of the day Sunday, and snow totals will easily reach 2 feet. But expect it to be more. Some areas, where the snow is persistent, could see 3 feet or more of additional accumulation.

Sunday’s “blizzard warning” ends at 1pm, but a lake effect snow warning will remain in effect.
