Nov. 3rd-4th Lake Effect Snow Event

By weather wktv

A cold front moved through early Thursday morning and behind it, the coldest air of the fall season moved in to Central New York.  Lake effect began to develop late Thursday and into the day on Friday.  Most of the snow impacted areas north of Utica on Thursday, with the heaviest snow falling in the central and north-central part of Oneida County. Scattered snow showers and squalls continued on Friday.  On Friday night, the lake effect band got better organized and remained across northern Oneida County and parts of southern Lewis County.  Additional snow totaled up to a foot or better in spots. Storm totals at this point had exceeded 20" in several locations.
