Impressive 3-Day Lake Effect Snowfall Totals Across Western/Central NY! (credit: NWS Buffalo, New York)
DISCUSSION: As the biggest lake effect snowfall event of the 2016-2017 Winter season finally came to an end in the early hours of this morning across wide stretches of both western and central New York, the snowfall totals from this event were tallied up. There is no question that this was certainly quite an impressive lake effect event with some places across parts of western New York received close to or over 3 feet of fresh snowfall. It is worth noting that this event was also fairly well-forecast even within 24 to 48 hours of the onset of the first flakes. This was encouraging since often times there is a large difficulty in being able to accurately forecast lake effect snowfall.
