November 19 2022

Saturday Morning Update 

Cold air has settled in, and it brought widespread flurries and snow showers for us yesterday. This morning we have a jet stream producing early clouds, which I will show on satellite. Tomorrow we get a reinforcing shot of cold air that may lead to a record cold afternoon for Baltimore and the Mid Atlantic. More on that and our Thanksgiving outlook below. 

Morning Surface Weather

Lake Effect Snow continues as the narrow bands will be shifting NORTH of Buffalo, then back south into the high total zones later today.

We have a jet streak, which is a band of fast winds aloft producing clouds in the Mid Atlantic. This should fade by the afternoon yielding more sun. Then the reinforcing colder air arrives tomorrow. More on that below.

 

Jet Streak On Satellite

This band of clouds (ending at 7:30 AM) across northern Virginia to Central Maryland and Delaware is from faster winds aloft.

Lake Effect Snow in New York

The big news continues to be Lake Effect Snow in Western New York, especially south of Buffalo. It is amazing to consider that over 5 feet of snow has fallen in a few places, which includes Orchard Park (home of the Buffalo Bills) with 66 inches! There is an investigation to confirm if that was in a 24 hour period. If it holds up, it will be a new record for New York State. So I gathered a few videos and photos for eye candy, however it is becoming a dangerous situation.  Two people have died shoveling snow, and now there is fear of roofs collapsing with the weight of the snow.

Totals As Of Saturday Morning

  • 71 inches – Natural Bridge
  • 66 inches – Orchard Park
  • 65 inches – Blasdell
  • 61 inches – Hamburg
  • 57 inches – Watertown 
  • 54.4 inches – East Aurora
  • 50 inches – Eden 
  • 48 inches – Marilla 

 

Record Today Already: Buffalo received 14 inches of snow between midnight and sunrise, setting a daily record. There will be more today!

Thanksgiving Storm Outlook

I wrote a report a few days ago showing the GFS Model with a snow and ice mix for our region. I did expect it to change, and it has. I still expect some more fluctuations as a very active jet stream will look like winter. 

There is no promise for snow here, but I would still pay close attention to the computer guidance as this evolves…

Both the American and European Models show that storm for Friday bringing us rain and inland snow.  That cold air is potent and still may shift the storm track. It may also produce snow showers next weekend to follow which is not getting picked up on yet.
