Trivia Tidbit:  What is lake-effect snow?   If you live on the downwind side of a large lake, you’re probably all too familiar with this weather phenomenon. It happens when cold winter air moves over a relatively warm body of water. What you get are small-scale but intense snowstorms.

Lake-effect snow occurs on such a small scale, almost on the scale of a summertime thunderstorm. One portion of a neighborhood or city might be under heavy snow, where a few miles away you may be under sunny skies.   via

    Here on the downwind side of the Great Lakes we sure know about lake effect. I can see 4-5″ of snow here, 5 miles west will see nothing, and 15 miles east will see 27″. Which is exactly what happened last week. Chicago, Erie, & Buffalo, can get epic amounts of snow measured in feet if the wind comes directly across the water at them.

    Lake Erie only has about 30% ice cover right now…maximum or total ice cover doesn’t usually occur until mid-Feb. As soon as the lake is frozen over, the lake effect ends.
