ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The lake effect snow storm that hit western New York is easing up. But there are still some travel bans in effect Monday morning. 

Governor Kathy Hochul released a statement Sunday night saying all current travel bans and advisories in Erie County will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Monday.

Right now, only three towns in Erie County are under travel bans. That does not include Buffalo or Orchard Park.

The rest of the county is under a travel advisory.

In our area, Genesee County has already lifted its travel advisory.

In Sunday’s press conference, the governor said despite rumors, Monday’s Buffalo Bills game will not be postponed again.

“Weather conditions will be very cold. They’ll be in the teens and even wind chill factors as low as zero, maybe to nine degrees. But that’s going to be very, very cold. But this will be without the danger of the winds and the blinding snow and the hazardous traffic conditions as they travel to the stadium or leaving,” says Hochul.

Sunday night, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz asked for volunteers in the Buffalo community to help shovel out Highmark Stadium. 

Volunteers had special permission to travel to the stadium starting at 10 Sunday night.
