First lake effect snow in the books

A recap of the lake effect snow that fell Sunday night and Monday and a preview of the weather heading into Thanksgiving.

We cashed in Sunday night and Monday on our first lake effect snow event of the season. The snowfall total ranged from 2-6" across our region. The biggest impact was slippery roads for the Monday morning commute.

It was a different story across the Tug Hill. By late morning, the bands exploded and brought heavy snow. This picture is from Laurie in Turin, where 8.5" of snow fell in only a few hours.

As we move forward, much warmer weather will briefly return on Tuesday. A strong southwest flow ahead of a storm system passing well to our north will bring a surge of warmer temperatures to the region. We're thinking high temperatures could break 50 degrees - impressive for a day after lake effect snow.

A cold front will return Tuesday night into Wednesday, bringing a round of rain, changing to snow. Cold weather will settle in for the Holiday and Holiday weekend. The long range forecast for Sunday and early next week does favor for a return of lake effect snow, but it's way too early to know how much, when, or where that will happen. Stay tuned!
