Interesting Weather Ahead!
The cold winter pattern looks to keep hanging in for us for at least the next week and bring with it some rather interesting weather. Several general snow systems, throw in a possible costal whooper, and some lake effect in between those to keep us occupied!
I am starting to get a little concerned with Buffalo falling so far behind so early this year. Since we usually get about half of our snow from the lake machine, one rooting for Buffalo should be worried since the lake is already down to 38 degrees (2 degrees below normal). If this cold continues Erie should start the icing over process by the end of December. Still leaves a chance for Buffalo to get back into things, but we better start kicking into gear and quick. Hopefully we will have that chance come Friday when a band might get fired up right into Buffalo, just have to wait and see.
As far as the other cities go, Bingo might be looking at a nice addition to its total Thrusday-Friday when a general snow storm tracks across Southern NY, and they might make a run for 1st or 2nd place. Then if Buffalo can get in on some decent lake effect, we might have all four cities neck and neck again.
We get a quick break from the snow early Saturday, but then a huge system moving in very early Sunday could turn into a major nor'easter and drop even more snow for some places. Hey maybe Albany can finally start posting some snowfall numbers.
I leave on this note....
