A winter weather advisory will be in effect for the Greater Olean area on Thursday from 1 a.m. to 6 p.m.

According to the National Weather Service, lake effect snow of 4 to 7 inches and winds gusts as high as 40 miles per hour will produce blowing and drifting snow, causing snow-covered roads and limited visibility.

"Plan on snow-covered and slippery road conditions," the agency warned in its advisory,  "Areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commute."
