    https://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/compare_years/compare_years_e.html Lake Erie's whole volume temperature, 71.8, now tops that of the last 2 year's. If we keep up the warm fall trend, it could make for an interesting November and December

    https://www.lre.usace.army.mil/Missions/Great-Lakes-Information/Great-Lakes-Water-Levels/Water-Level-Forecast/Weekly-Great-Lakes-Water-Levels/ Lake Erie is actually 19 inches above normal. What did you see that made you think it was so far below?

    A little early in the month to tell for sure, but it looks like there is a decent chance this month finishes as a top 5 hottest on record in Buffalo. Maybe even number 1 if we get another good heat wave and no real cooldown. It sucks to work in, but if it is going to be summer, summer weather is what I want, so no real complaints from me. Come September though, and I'm ready for the change.

    Very sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how difficult it is to lose someone close so quickly and tragically.

    Pretty serious heat wave it looks like next week... GFS predicting 105 heat index next Sunday, h850s up to around 22-24. Does anyone recall the last time we saw it get that hot? Especially in June

    Looks like we'll be able to eke out the coldest April since the the official weather station moved to the airport. I don't think it's fair to compare temperatures taken at the airport now to ones taken next to an ice covered lake, so hopefully the weather service acknowledges that. It wouldn't even be a top 10 coldest as it stands, because all of the top 10 coldest April's occurred when the station was located on the waterfront.

    I found this very interesting journal article for Ice to Liquid ratios, and after going through it, and more thoroughly analyzing model output for this event, I'd definitely have to side with the NWS on this. https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/full/10.1175/WAF-D-15-0118.1 At high precipitation rates (>0.1 in/hr), freezing rain does not accumulate very efficiently, and obviously, when a model is indicating 1"+ of freezing rain, the actual rate that precipitation was falling at had to be fairly high. So that 1" of freezing rain liquid might accumulate 1/2" of ice at best. Throw in that it seems mesoscale modeling is trending north with the storm, and the effect of the strong April sun, and it doesn't pose the high risk for damage I was thinking earlier. But, we'll just have to wait and see.

    Looks like we might be seeing a trend to the north with the 0z models. The RDPS hardly brings any freezing rain to Buffalo, with no more than .5" anywhere in WNY.

    Sleet usually has a liquid equivalent of around 2.5:1 though, so you can cut those totals down 1/4. 3-4 inches of sleet would definitely be messy, but not as bad as 1" plus of ice.

    Just the fact that models are depicting this in mid April is something. I have a feeling we'll unfortunately see another event or two before the season is truly done.

    Get out there and take some pictures! It must be beautiful out there right now.

    32" report in Schoharie county, and it's still ripping there. Is 48" possible there?

    5.8" when I cleared off the board at 1230, and 6.2 this morning, for a solid 12". ~10" depth, but I didn't bother checking that too thoroughly, so if you are just measuring depth, you can probably add on 2" for compaction.
