The recent Arctic air mass has not only brought a deep freeze to a large chunk of the eastern part of the country, but it has also turned on the lake effect snow machine. A very heavy lake effect snow band has been persistent over parts of western New York. We’re getting reports of nearly 3ft. near Pulaski, NY!
Take a look at the picture below from Jenn King via Newzjunky.com Facebook page HERE:
Massive Lake Effect Snow Band
Take a look at that monstrous lake effect snow band over Lake Ontario. The lake effect snow band nearly stretches the entire length of the lake! The size of this lake effect band is part of the reason why the snow is heavy over the eastern part of the lake.
Sodus Point, NY
This is an awesome view from Sodus Point, NY on the south side of Lake Ontario looking NNE toward the heavy lake effect snow band. You can actually see the snow falling!
Snow Drought Continues
Despite seeing a recent uptick in snowfall downwind of the all the Great Lakes, many locations are still dealing with a snow deficit. This can be attributed to the lack of Arctic air and lake effect snow events we’ve had this season.
