Winter Weather Awareness Week continues!

Heavy snow can immobilize a region and paralyze a city. Accumulations of snow can cause roofs to collapse and knock down trees and power lines. The cost of snow removal, repairing damages, and the loss of business can have severe economic impacts and cities and towns. Heavy snow in western and northern New York is defined as 7 inches or more falling in a 1...2 hour period or 9 inches or more falling in a 24 hour period. Most heavy snow in our region is caused by lake effect. As arctic air sweeps across the relatively warm waters of Lakes Erie and Ontario, heavy snow forms and falls downstream. Snowfall rates can exceed 4 inches an hour. Strong winds often accompany lake effect snow which cause deep drifts and reduce visibility.
