Right now...a classic lake-effect snowband is hammering areas north of Syracuse, NY.  Don't attempt to drive north on Interstate 81...you'll come into whiteout conditions.  Screen grab of radar is below.

NWS-Buffalo just issued a statement saying snowfall rates may be up to 5" per hour in that band!  Imagine if it took you an hour to shovel your driveway.  By the time you were done at one end of the driveway, where you started would have 5".  Wow!
