The winter weather is on the way to parts of New York over the next several days.

A winter storm watch has been issued for many counties and towns that are along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario and based on the projected snow totals, there will be a lot of snow to shovel when it is all said and done.

The majority of the heavy snowfall will be in the Southern Tier and along Tug Hill. A lot of the towns in the traditional lake effect snow belts will also get a couple of inches of snow during this storm.

The National Weather Service has issued the Winter Storm Watch for several different counties in New York including Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, Wyoming, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Southern Erie.

Each one of those counties could see substantial Lake Effect snowfall over the next 72 hours. The National Weather Service is predicting over a half foot of snow is possible.
