Heavy Lake Effect Snow Falling in the Eastern Great Lakes
Cold air rushing across the eastern Great Lakes is helping to produce several lake effect snow bands, some with heavy snow. Winter weather alerts extend from northwestern Pennsylvania to Vermont. Up to an additional 6″ may fall today (Wednesday) bringing some totals to around a foot of accumulation over the last 24 hours.
Along with the cold air, a trough of low pressure crossing the Great Lakes will help to enhance snowfall. This is behind the low pressure center that produced blizzard conditions from the Midwest into New England. Snow bands will become more disorganized into Thursday morning and diminish by afternoon as the wind direction shifts.
