Upstate/Eastern New York- Jan 5-7 Lake Effect Snow Event

Looks like it's weakening and becoming more of a widespread, showery event.

Still coming down decent though. Keep hope alive!

FYI, just checked in on our local Sizzlemeter (otherwise known as Hancock Field thermometer)...26F at noon while 8 or 9 WeatherUnderground reporting spots in vicinity have 22-24F.  If their temp data is going to be biased High every.single.f*cking.day, pretty sure I don't want to hear about CC out of NWS.

Yeah, it's beautiful flakes coming down. Not being picked up well by radar. I'm on the western edge of the best snows now though. Visibility has gone up and the sky is brightening a bit.  I've noticed our region is in a bad radar location in that we are out of the range of all 3 radar sites.

Yeah, that airport thermomenter....

Looks like the wind is turning more westerly. :( 

 For just a little bit, ahead of a small short wave crossing the lake. It'll turn more northwesterly and then drier air moves in this evening as inversion lowers to dry up left overs...

Always appreciate your information. Sun is out now. Perhaps it will encourage some instability and add to those possible snow squalls? Maybe pick up a couple more inches this afternoon?

Sun out here too Matt, 2" OTG now ; was thinking the very same with instability. 2 more inches for a total of 4 'll be happy

My Liberty NY house got 2 inches

My long Island House got 4 inches

It’s snowing heavily here again. That band off the lake made it here and I’m in the middle of a heavy squall now. Unfortunately for you, Sferic, there’s a pretty sharp cut off to the south. 

True ! I like the flip side too when the unexpected happens and events overperform so onward !

The heaviest snow has set up literally 5 miles north of me. I’m on the southern edge of the band so I’m going between light snow and periods where the sun is shining.

Looks like the bands are starting to move south a bit again with a shift of the wind back to NW.
