Niagara Under Winter Weather Travel Advisory

Advisory in effect for late this afternoon and this evening

Looks like winter isn't quite done yet. 

A winter weather travel advisory has been issued for Niagara. 

Environment Canada says the area will get 1 to 2 cm of snow late this afternoon into the evening. 

This is due to a sharp cold front making its way through southern Ontario, bringing a burst of heavy wet snow. 

Winds could get as high as 70 km/h, and the snow and strong winds may create challenging driving conditions. 

The weather office is also calling for a sudden drop in temperatures, which could cause roads, sidewalks and parking lots to become slippery. 

Drivers may experience reduced visibility . 

If visibility is reduced while driving, you're advised to turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. 

The flurries will end later tonight.

Meanwhile, a special weather statement is in effect for Buffalo. 

The National Weather Service says the area will get a strong arctic cold front late this afternoon into the evening. 

The area may see rain, thunderstorms and snow, and temperatures are expected to drop to around the freezing point.
