SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Syracuse area is next in line to get hammered with lake-effect storms that have already buried parts of western and northern New York under more than 2 feet of snow.

The National Weather Service says wind-driven storms off the eastern end of Lake Erie dumped up to 25 inches on areas south of Buffalo on Monday. Lake Ontario storms have dropped 26 to 34 inches on areas in neighboring Jefferson and Lewis counties, north of Syracuse.

Forecasters say the Lake Ontario snow bands will move south Tuesday and dump 12 to 18 inches of snow from Syracuse east to Rome and Utica.

A lake-effect snow warning is in effect Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with 15- to 25-mph winds gusting as high as 40 mph.
