Heavy lake-effect snow will affect travel across Great Lakes into midweek

Wednesday, November 14, 2018


Lake-effect snow showers and squalls will redevelop from west-to-east downwind of the Great Lakes into Wednesday as per AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.



A brief but heavy burst of lake-effect snow is going to affect travel conditions across the eastern Great Lakes including along the Interstate-90 corridor of New York and Pennsylvania.



A reinforcing shot of cold air will trigger the snow showers and squalls over the Great Lakes and Northeast.



Pennsylvania’s already impressive month-to-date snowfall of 14.2 inches will receive a few more inches of snow.



A band of very heavy snow is projected to set up from southeast of Lake Huron to southeast of Lake Ontario with parts of Ontario and upstate New York in the path.



Syracuse, New York, lies right in the heart of this heavy snow band. Between 6-12 inches of snow is expected to accumulate in and around the city. Stretches of interstates 81 and 90 can become slick and snow-covered reducing the visibility to near zero. The snow will pile up within an hour’s time posing a dangerous situation for motorist. Major disruptions to daily routines can occur.



An area of high pressure will likely be shut off snow by Wednesday.
