Over a foot as of 3pm..

 

...Jefferson County...
Watertown                    12.3 in   0258 PM 01/06   43.97N/75.91W

With the snow they've been having since and Thompson Park being at a higher elevation, there's probably quite a bit more now.

Some heavy 2”+ over the north part of the metro heading NE…I can see many areas over a foot with KBUF to Lancaster 2’

We’re at about 16” in the University District, making a run at 2 feet if the band continues to barely move south. I moved to WNY in October 2012 (at the same time Sandy was hitting the east coast). In my time here, I have only lived in 14214, and this is the best storm for the northern part of the city in that almost 10 year span. Really hoping for 2’.

Great to read that you finally got the great band!

Remarkable difference from your 16" and the around 3" UB North got. 

I can't recall a Lake Effect event where the city proper, North to South Buffalo, was the jackpot like this one. Usually your location is just north of the good stuff.

Has anyone else ever seen a storm sliding through PA heading to the coast while still seeing a SW flow lake effect band? I can’t recall ever seeing one.

Agreed this is very strange…especially as Delta pointed out last evening when he mentioned our best setup is a closed low over superior or just a bit north of that. 

You guys are getting that because of what's left of the Low that went over the Upper Great Lakes. SW winds are flowing in from that.

Congrats today! What’s your total? I measured 10.3 so far and still flurrying to occasionally light snow

I was at 16 before the second round that started at about 4. So prob around 18-19. Looks to be picking up a lil, maybe make it to 2’.
