Lake Effect Snow to return to Jamestown-area by late weekend...

Chautauqua County is getting a break from the lake effect snow that dumped over a foot in some areas earlier this week.  However... there is another round of lake effect in store for us, starting late this weekend.  Meteorologist David Thomas with the National Weather Service in Buffalo says a cold air mass moving over Lake Erie will fire up the lake effect machine on Sunday.  Thomas says it is too early to tell right now which areas will get hit hardest by this round of snow, but adds this storm has the potential for significant accumulation through the early part of next week.  He says it's still a little too early to tell where the Lake Effect bands will be setting up.  Our recent lake effect snows have been fueled by the still-unfrozen waters of Lake Erie... which is currently at 34 degrees at the eastern end of the lake.
