Lake Effect Summary - October 29, 2006

Maximum Snowfall: Lake Erie 4" (Ellicottville); Lake Ontario 11" (Highmarket) 

Duration: 18 hours +/- 

Prime Feature: Marginal post frontal event. Very localized, elevation oriented.

The 2006-07 season's second event was a very localized marginal one which followed a frontal passage after a deep storm passage. Temperatures were just cold enough but as in many early season storms, the event was elevation dependent. A few inches fell over higher elevations southeast of Lake Erie in ski country, while 6-12 inches fell across much of the central and southern Tug Hill. The event began in the early morning hours on Sunday 29th and tapered off by early evening.  

This was the first time two events occurred in October in the 13 year record of 
our network.

The event was marginal and affected a very limited sparsely populated area. It therefore earns one * star.

Here are some representative reports.
