I hope SouthBuffaloSteve is in his spot at the waterfront already. This “pre” front lake effect/enhanced snow right now with these wind gust is insane. I bet right at the waterfront has to be absolutely nuts right now and this isn’t even the front ! 

Was a little late getting out.  Made for a very fun drive downtown this morning.  Winds are really whipping the snow around… Hunkering down at the Erie Basin Marina for the front passage.

Let us have this one near the coast :)

Nope. Long Island and most of coastal New England are above average for the season. :P

The Canadian has jackpotted Onondaga county a couple times this season. I obviously would love to see this lock in and actually happen. :)

True whiteout with the frontal passage. Can’t see across street. Insane.

It just hit so fast.  Barely made it back into the car just saw a wall of white racing towards shore and bam went from clear to whiteout in 10 seconds.   Snagged 2 super bright thundersnow flashes in the whiteout.

Expect a burst of lake enhanced snow with the clipper cold front
early to mid morning. A band of heavy lake effect snow will then
develop by late morning across the Tug Hill Plateau. This band of
snow will drift slowly south across the Tug from late morning
through mid afternoon, becoming quite heavy with 2-3"/hr snow fall
rates likely. Late this afternoon the band will move south across
Oswego County and weaken as boundary layer flow veers more
northwesterly. Total accumulations will likely reach 8-12" across
the Tug Hill Plateau, with 3-6" for some of the surrounding lower

Some lake effect snow will persist tonight southeast of Lake
Ontario, but in a weaker state as inversion heights fall and
moisture decreases. Expect 2-3" across portions of Wayne and
northern Cayuga counties, and 1-2 inches near the lakeshore in
Monroe County. What remains of the lake effect will drift back over
the lake and end by Sunday morning.

Colder air settles into the area for a couple days until the next
system with decent timing unison in model guidance approaches for
Thursday night and Friday. The ECMWF is notably warmer than other
global model solutions, and it is really the only solution that
brings up enough warm air to have a changeover to rain, however it`s
rarely a good idea to fully discount the ECMWF in the extended.
Thus, while the forecast favors colder solutions for the moment, the
numbers were tempered a bit to account for the warmer ECMWF.

How high did winds get?

Winds were strong pre front 40-45 but really ramped up inside the squall line.  Car was violently shaking for a few minutes had to be 55-60 gusts. Crazy how fast the winds subsided to just a breeze on the backside of the front.  Got at least 4 thundersnow strikes.
