It is always a difficult forecast to pin down the all-important exact wind flow in this kind of localized (“mesoscale”) weather event, but it appears there will be an extended period with low-level W-SW winds blowing across Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. This is the perfect wind trajectory for places like Buffalo and Watertown to get pummeled with heavy snow bands as this direction allows the air to flow over the lake of interest (Erie or Ontario) for the longest period of time as a result of their particular geographical orientation.  Given this expected wind flow scenario, copious amounts of moisture will push into Buffalo (from Lake Erie) and Watertown (from Lake Ontario) in the form of intense snow banding. This kind of event has the potential of dumping several feet of snow in localized areas such as Buffalo and Watertown in western New York with incredible hourly snow rates possible…a potential paralyzing early season snow event.
