Historic Lake Effect Snow in New York State


Recommended Posts

I've uploaded a substantial number of photos from the historic LES event in western New York State that were provided to me by many persons. That event brought over 100" (254 cm) of snow to some towns.

    Strange how the warmer waters of the lake leads to colder conditions on land! God bless Temp. anoms.

    Technically the snow is formed by the temperature gradient between the warm waters and the already cold land/air surface so it doesnt actually make the land any cooler in that respect

    Ah Don, the legend at easternuswx I take it?

    Some great photos, good lord if we had that we'd have to call a emergancy. Intresting to see given we may just have our own little version of that IF the ECM and GFS are right tonight.

    I was in Mexico yesterday (NY obviously!) and there is still a lot of snow about.

    Quite interesting to see the picture of McDonald's as we were drinking coffee in that very place. If you look at the right of the picture you'll see an enormous mound of snow. I estimated it to be about 11 feet. One of the McDonald's employees was standing on top of it trying to dig down to the sidewalk!

    Got some pics so will post some when I get the chance. All I can say is that the amount of snow was simply jaw-dropping!

    The thaw has started over here though...
