Feet of Snow Pile up in Weekend Lake Effect Event
More lake effect snow dumped feet of snow on parts of upstate New York this weekend, and there’s plenty more on the way.
A lake effect snow event brought totals up to at least two feet in parts of New York State this weekend, with several other double-digit totals piling up across the Empire State.
The most-affected locations included the Green and Adirondack Mountains of Vermont and New York, and in particular the snow-prone Tug Hill Plateau near Watertown, New York.
The heaviest snow is winding down in these locations, but more lake effect snow is possible through the middle of the work week as an unsettled weather pattern remains in place across the eastern third of the country.
Cold, northwesterly winds over the relatively warm lake waters will set up the continuation of lake effect snow along the downwind shores of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Erie and Ontario for the first part of the week. Along with the lake effect bands will be several small ‘clipper’ systems that could bring a few inches of snow on Monday and Tuesday to a wider area, from the Mid-Atlantic to the Upper Midwest.
