    Apparently the flooding in Montreal is forecast to crest higher than 2017, which means they outflows off Ontario will have to be less than they were around the same time in 2017. Apparently that's causing a (relatively) rapid rise in Ontario's lake level. And interestingly enough lake Erie is at a record high for the month of May right now. Or at least is above the record high average for May, so there could be some discrepancy there. https://www.lre.usace.army.mil/Missions/Great-Lakes-Information/Great-Lakes-Water-Levels/Water-Level-Forecast/Weekly-Great-Lakes-Water-Levels/

    The next few days are looking good for me at least in the lower Hudson Valley! The weather has been very boring since I moved here. The 12z Canadian went bonkers on me for next week. I have no idea how this place could handle 3' of snow. I have co-workers leave work as soon as it starts snowing

    Not in the area to expect the full blast of the winds, but we do have a high wind warning down here for the night. 60-65 mph they are saying. Seems like some pretty widespread damage reports on the NWS site. I was particularly amused by this one, considering how much every student hates the bookstore

    https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/sector_band.php?sat=G16&sector=cgl&band=GEOCOLOR&length=36 You can really see the frozen lake Erie today. Looks like the southern band should continue pushing north too, and is strengthening. I guess that's why they are leaving the winter storm warnings intact.

    GOES 16 Satellite You can see it's become increasingly multi-banded, even as winds shift more to the Southwesterly.

    Perhaps, impossible to tell from satellite imagery, but according to this map, the lake is fairly ice covered. I know we found this map to pretty suspect, but there's definitely gotta be a decent ice cover now, regardless of wind or waves. Also maybe more dry air is working in and inhibiting the snow.

    If you look at the Cleveland radar and goes satellite, you can see the shifting of the winds to a more southerly component. Should allow a more intense single band to develop. But really who knows lol

    Man I swear whatever snow you get I get. Just measured and cleared off my board and I'm up to 8.7" as well. This snow hole definitely blows. I'd be more than happy with a storm total of 12" now.

    Remain separate for several hours, leaving a snow hole in West Seneca and South Buffalo. Then they will combine, intensify and move further into the Southtowns, transitioning right through us lol

    You guys in the northtowns with the 20"+ total need to report your snow to the weather service! Would hate for those high snowfall amounts to get unrecognized when they write up the report on the storms later this winter.

    I don't think that's actually an area where it isn't snowing, just an artifact of the radar. I'm sure someone can give a more detailed reason for it's occurrence, but it always seems to be there

    Looks like we'll have a tough time getting in on the action in South Buffalo, so I'm gonna call it a night. Hopefully that southern edge finds it's way over us when the band settles

    Yeah, I was doing some research for determining snowfall ratios in very cold temperatures like this storm. Those 30:1 ratios the kuchera maps show ain't gonna happen, as weatherporn as it may be lol

    Last night was very cold and calm, so I'm guessing that aided ice growth a lot. That being said, that would mean much of the ice is very thin, so if that's the case, maybe it won't have much affect at all. It's still interesting to note, nonetheless

    I think it may have broken up some further down towards Cleveland with temperatures above freezing and strong southerly winds, but that is definitely going to inhibit lake effect bands of Erie significantly. It'll probably be frozen over by Thursday afternoon, so ski country probably won't see too much
