Upstate/Eastern New York- Jan 9-11 Lake Effect Snow Event

"That lake" is the Redfield Reservoir.  Actually Salmon River Reservoir but everyone refers to it as the Redfield Res.  Easy way to locate things up there.

Yup...the actual "downtown" community of Redfield is getting clobbered. Then, over to Osceola. That is the exact area I called home for a winter.

Heavy lake snows across Oswego county this afternoon will be brought
to an abrupt end early this evening...courtesy of an arctic cold
front that is charging south from just the other side of Lake
Ontario. Before that occurs though...another 6 to 10 inches of snow
will fall over the northern half of Oswego county between 1 PM and 7
PM.

As the arctic cold front plows south through the region tonight...
it will be marked by a 30-60 min burst of moderate to heavy snow in
most locations. For the counties lining the New York shores of Lake
Ontario and Erie...the snow will be lake enhanced and will likely
lead to nighttime snow accums of 3 to 6 inches. Winter weather
advisories are in effect for these areas. Areas outside of these
lake enhanced counties should pick up a general 1 to 3 inches of
snow. Lower amounts will be found north of the Tug.

The other issue tonight...and lasting through the first half of
Tuesday...will be bitter cold wind chills east of Lake Ontario. The
sub arctic airmass will sent he mercury to between zero and the
minus teens for that area...and with winds averaging 10 to 15 mph...
that will generate wind chill values of -20 F over Oswego county to
as low as -30F for parts of Jefferson and Lewis counties.

Random question, but do areas like Redfield and the other off the path snow king  towns get Spectrum, Fios or Natural Gas through National Grid?

My best friend is buying a house in Brantingham which would fall here. He said they get full ISP coverage which he was surprised (Not sure who it is) and also gas i believe.

I spend a lot of time on Brantingham Lake and there is definitely no Natural Gas there. Time Warner does offer high speed internet. Where did he buy? On the lake? There’s been very few properties available.

Internet is horrible up there, and they jack the prices up knowing full well the lack of competition. When I was there, there were rumbles discussion of them expanding Fios from Camden to Redfield.

P.S. I love the little town of Camden. If I had been able to get a job in Camden (very limited due to size) I would have easily lived in the area between Florence and Camden. That northwest portion of Oneida county is a hidden snow weenie's dream! It's a bit higher up in elevation and does amazing in setups like today. They often had more snow there than in South Redfield where I was at.

Matt,

 

If we lucked out, what could our areas max out with from tonight's round?

As I've said for days, 6 to 10 inches. I think our minimum will be about 3 or 4 inches. Sometimes the snowband can get hung up a bit (not for long with that Arctic front rushing in today) and then we can get several more inches if there are some intense multi-bands. If those things all fall in place, over 6 inches is very possible. If the front just rushes through and we get scattered snow showers behind it, that 3 to 4 inches would probably be it. I think we'll get more than the 3 to 4 inches, especially with the fluff factor. Syrmax has a good call of about 6 inches.

Almost directly on the lake, Partridgeville road actually maybe 2 minutes from the Pine Tree.

Probably has electric then if that's the case.. I'd have to find the listing and check.

He was gunning for a spot right in Brantingham since last summer and couldn't find anything. Someone renovated a house entirely and snagged it.

Yeah, remote areas are getting fiber quickly as there was a huge grant from the state. For example in Delaware county I had fiber from MTC (Margaretville Telephone company) basic cable and 25mbps(which is a joke for fiber, and doesn't cost them anything to speed you up) was like $165/mo because they knew there was no competition for internet. No DirecTV, no spectrum, frontier, etc. If you wanted them to increase speed the price went up astronomically.

Not a lot of Dentists up there either. Demand/Supply thing. ;)

Look at the Northeast edge of that band on radar, it's actually hoovering in snow from just north of the band. Freaking incredible.

There's more people in Redfield with the last name Yerdon (or some spelling version of it) than there are teeth.

The 1.5 to 2 inches of snow from last night was definitely a lower ratio snowfall with that synoptic element to it. It's barely budged (other than from gusty winds) in hours and hours of sunshine. The lake effect fluff from other "events" this season vanished quickly. (The ground is also colder now too, which has some effect.)
