    Music to my ears. Hopefully lake chilled breezes don’t get too far away from the shores. I was in downtown BUF for a bit this evening. Temp dropped from 64 at my house to 50 down at canal side.

    From 72 hours of rain and temps in the 40s here to thunderstorms and torrential rain less than 24 hours later. Deluge ongoing right now with frequent lightning. I mean, can the weather be any more of a sh%+ show here?

    We’ve had a short respite here in WNY. Sun broke out yesterday afternoon and full sun to start today. Looks short lived though. Bummer you guys out east are still stuck in the gloom.

    Good to see, hope it holds up! Persistence of this pattern has been remarkably annoying. Haven’t checked online, but have to think L Ontario water levels could be a problem like we had a couple years ago.

    Got lucky and busted into the warm sector here early this afternoon. BUF was up to 78 at 4pm. Feels fantastic.

    Unless you like temps in the 30’s-40’s with frequent rain and clouds almost every day, WNY/CNY weather is abysmal. Absolutely abysmal.

    These 2 maps give a good clue I think for why springtime weather (e.g. March 21 to early May) in upstate NY trends towards tragic so often. That's still a solid snow pack just upstream. Depths right now are mapped over 1' near the southern extent. I'm guessing the relatively colder air over that pack plays a big role in our weather - pathway for storms, reservoir of winter chill ready and willing to drip south into our neighborhoods, etc. The orientation of the snow pack is interesting as well. You can see how the frigid air over the Canadian Archipelago bleeds south over James Bay on a pathway to the Great Lakes. The hemisphere snow cover map is interesting as well. Note that snow cover approaches the 45th latitude only in our neck of the woods this time of year...

    The last 48 or so hours of weather really does strike home the overall harshness of our climate. Spring is just so damn slow to materialize in these parts. Here we are approaching 2 months to the summer solstice and we've endured a battering ram of cold rain, snow squalls, and gusty winds going on 2 days. Maybe having my daughter studying abroad in the Netherlands, at a much more northern latitude at that, reporting all sorts of spring wonders (sun, frequent temps in the 60's to 70, full green-up) for the last 3 weeks has soured my view on our climate. Our positioning in the global wave train coming out of northern hemisphere winter just...hurts. It's like the frozen water of James Bay is a giant middle finger pointed right at us. We have to endure weeks and weeks of damp, gray, disgusting discharge from the Canadian prairies as the seasons slowly change...All while plebians in D.C. just an hour plane ride to the south get high on the scent of cherry blossoms, and Euro's in Amsterdam several tics of latitude to our north get high on...other stuff. Ok, rant over...

    Snow never really stopped here all day. Didn't accumulate during the day, but still impressive (depressing?) to have snow in the air for the full 13 or so hours of daylight. Still snowing moderately and starting to accumulate again, with roads fully covered.

    Eyeballing 2 inches here with steady snow falling.

    Almost ashamed to (happily) report 1” here that melted by 10 am and allowed me to hit golf balls under a bright blue sky. So ready for spring. Congrats to all who got a nice shot of snow.

    Nicely done! Great mix of intense winds, crashing waves, and heavy snow.
