Heavy Lake Effect Snow Band Pounds Binghamton, New York! (credit: NWS Binghamton)
DISCUSSION: As an incredibly intense and very persistent lake effect snow band continued to impact many parts of Central New York as well as parts of the Southern Tier region of New York. As this band continued to sit over areas including (but not limited to) Binghamton, New York, the snowfall continue to pile up quite rapidly during the past 24 to 36 hours or so. Moreover, during many prolonged periods of time, there were also substantially reduced visibilities in place as well which made for dangerous travel conditions both on the ground, on the rails, and also in the air (particularly during takeoffs and landings of commercial aircraft).
It is also worth noting that this single lake effect snowfall event has already delivered at least half of the total 2015-2016 seasonal snowfall total which certainly puts the event into stronger perspective. Feel free to watch the video attached above which provides a summary of this lake effect snowfall event as of late this morning.
