A strong low pressure center has moved through the Northeast into Ontario, circulating cold air across the Great Lakes. This has lead to heavy lake effect snow, with some areas seeing already over a foot of accumulations. Strong wind gusts greater than 40 mph are creating significant blowing and drifting snow. The lake effect snow will continue into early Saturday, with heaviest snowfall near Lake Erie and Lake Ontario in New York. Additional snowfall will likely be measured in feet instead of inches. The intense northwest winds on the backside of this system will continue to bring significant lake-effect snow to from Lake Superior to Lake Ontario. As the atmosphere starts to warm Saturday and the wind begins to shift, lake effect snow bands will diminish. WeatherNation will keep you updated on-air and online with the latest forecast.
