More Lake-Effect Snow for New York This Weekend

22 Nov 2017, 1:06 pm

Parts of New York could see more heavy lake-effect snow by the end of the weekend.  A few snow showers will be possible for Thanksgiving, but the snow accumulation will likely not amount to much.  That might not be the story for Saturday night and Sunday.

Lake-Effect Set-Up

A cold front moving through the Northeast on Saturday will help to set-up this lake effect snow chance.  Cold air behind the front will be moving over the warm waters of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie and produce lake-effect snow showers.  The latest timing for snow will be Saturday night and early Sunday.

Snowfall Forecast

Snowfall potential should fall into the 1 to 6 inch range, but this forecast estimate will likely change as we get closer and have a better handle on this set-up.
