Monday was a busy day for snowplow drivers and snow shovelers as parts of New York were impacted by Lake Effect snow storms.

In Western New York, a band of Lake Effect snow moved more north than expected and ended up wreaking havoc with the afternoon commute for many people who live just south of Buffalo.

Here is a look at the highest amount of lake effect snow that fell in less than 24 hours.

In upstate New York, they were bracing for anywhere between 8-12 inches of snow in some areas. The Lake Effect snow is still expected to continue today bringing several more inches of snow before the end of the day.

If you are out there shoveling or snowblowing make sure that you are doing these things to be a good neighbor.
