Starting early Tuesday morning, three feet of snow blanketed parts of western New York, especially the city of Buffalo — and the deluge likely won’t stop for days.

The National Weather Service has issued a lake effect snow warning for Genesee, Erie, and Wyoming counties until 1:00 pm EST on Wednesday. Snowfall rates could hit five inches per hour, bringing a potential total of six feet of snow, the service reports.

Lake effect snow occurs when a cold front moves over a large body of warmer water, creating unstable temperatures in the atmosphere. As a result, clouds form, suck up water, and develop into heavy snow as they move downwind.

White-out conditions forced the closure of I-90, a major highway in the area, in both directions. Going forward, visibility could reach zero at times, according to the NWS.

Some towns near Buffalo have declared a state of emergency because travel conditions are so hazardous. Travel bans are in place and schools have been shut down in some areas, according to The Weather Channel and local news.

More than 100 vehicles in western New York have already been stranded on roadways because of the storm. Even snow plows are getting stuck on the roads, The Buffalo News reports.
