November 16 Windy And Cold Trend Into The Weekend
November 16 2022
Wednesday Morning Update
We have areas of fog this morning and wet roads, but safely above freezing (for now). A cold winter pattern will be settling in for the rest of the week. For most of us that just means windy and cold, but dry. There will be an impressive Lake Effect Snow event setting up, which includes Western Maryland, and big snow numbers are about to be reported from Erie to Buffalo.

Snow Spotter Map
These numbers are from NWS Spotters. While Western Maryland shows up around 1/2 inch, I have received personal reports closer to 2”.
Nearby Chambersburg PA to Harrisburg had a coating to 1” of snow.
Central Pennsylvania were the big winners where Altoona to State College got close to 5 inches.
Rocket Launch Video
If you slept in, NASA finally got Artemis 1 off the ground and safely into space just before 2 AM. Here is the video coverage of the liftoff.
Morning Surface Weather
Our Nor’easter is located near New York City and heading into New England. Heavy interior snow for the mountains, then a new Lake Effect Snow event will set up to our west.
This may bring a few inches to Garrett County, and perhaps closer to a foot or two for some locations near Buffalo.
Wide View Forecast
As the Nor’easter departs, cold wind will set up into the weekend. The Lake Effect Snow will crank for many days as well, but local metro areas should remain dry. Perhaps a passing flurry in the northern suburbs.
Pennsylvania Lake Effect Snow
Here is the NWS Forecast for the Pennsylvania Lake Effect Snow:
Temperature Forecast Afternoon
