    Ice is an insulator, if ice continued to flow down the river, the lake could actually cool more quickly in your scenario as liquid water would continually be exposed to cold air. That said, the impact is negligible relative to the scale of that lake. Also, there have been studies on the ice boom and spring temps and absolutely no correlation was found. The ice boom protects homeowners along the river and prevent issues with hydro electric power, but that boom is so tiny relative to the size and volume of lake Erie that no tangible weather effects have ever been observed. It's all Buffalo Folklore. I should add, that maybe a mile or two directly around the boom might have a slightly colder day or so during a tiny time period right around the removal time if there was still pack ice, but overall this is virtually in the noise http://niagara.nypa.gov/ALP working documents/finalreports/html/IS39.htm

    I can't be sure, but my intuition is that is has very little effect on the overall freeze up of the lake. Ice flows would just start jamming up around the peace bridge pretty quickly on their own. The boom just allows them to control where the jamming occurs.

    Thats actually not the worst little band right now. I bet there is some downright moderate snow in there.

    Kind of a glancing blow on the HIRES NAM, by the time it gets juicy its heading south. Still looks like a Solid 3 hours for Northern Erie which could be 6 inches or so. If it can get started earlier than that model depicts it might overachieve. Also, It does come right near rush hour which should be taken into account when they drop watches. I'm pulling for you guys.

    I'm getting the heaviest snow of the whole event at the absolute ass end, lol. Better late than never I guess.

    Stop looking at them and putting so much faith in them! It's like you never learn...lol They are just worst case scenario maps from the get go

    Friday looks dry, Saturday looks dry until late evening, some scattered showers overnight, and then Sunday looks dry all day. What am I missing?

    What is going on in here? So much doom and gloom. The start to winter has been early and strong, not sure what y'all are complaining about. The way I see it almost everything we have gotten so far is straight bonus snow. Many years I would still be waiting on my first real coating or inch of snow on this date. Just a few years back Buffalo didn't even get its first measurable snow until after Christmas. It could be much worse! Additionally, that arctic front looks viscous. Wouldn't be surprised if someone heard a rumble of thunder in it. The NWS is dropping snow squall warnings for it.

    Yeah, I see that now that other reports are trickling in. Canandaigua area was a local jackpot for sure.

    6 inches on the west side of Roc. My brother in victor says he has 14. I’m sure that’s slightly inflated but he was much closer to the sweet spot in this one.

    One last thing I observed. The plows were hitting the leaf piles at the curbs, some streets are such a mess. Haha.

    I’m just about to fall asleep and I swear I here some pings mixing in again. Wish I could stay up see how things unfold. We already got more than I thought we would so it’s all gravy now.

    Just measured 4 inches in several places around the yard. It’s an absolutely great storm to start the season.

    I might be caught up in the moment but I think my “pessimistic” totals are going to bust by 2 or 3x. Haha, lets goooo. It’s pounding snow right now!
