Lake Effect
« on: January 05, 2015, 08:56:11 PM »
For those of us in the Great lakes area especially on the easterly sides of those giant snow cone machines
we understand all to well what Lake Affect Snow is and how it can cover a very wide area or relatively narrow band,
For those who may not know here was my day today, this is what can happen when the conditions are ripe.

Welcome to the Snow Belt
Oh...  it was 50 deg yesterday, 17 deg this morning

We have a "Gulf" here that effects and determines our weather.  The main difference is that the Gulf waters are warm which means rain and storms.

We get quite a bit of "lake-affect" snow here, but nothing like you get, Dan.

The Tug Hill area apparently gets the most!

Right now we don't have any, just the remnants of some of the snow banks.

We have had lots of snow, it melted, came back, rinse and repeat.  :D Missed the worst of it this week, so far anyway. Around 10 here now though and dropping out as I type. Cold one tomorrow, looking like around 0F by 2pm!

I like this area but I sure could do without the lake effect. Driving down I-79 this afternoon traffic was down to 20-30 mph, 20 miles south and the roads were basically dry and the sun was shining.

I used to skid logs with my brand new snowmobile, wish I had pics. Probably why it's a piece crap now. :D :D
