Lake Effect Storm Mealworm February 15-16, 2007
Maximum Snowfall: Lake Erie 4"
(Warsaw); Lake Ontario 16" (Palermo)
Duration: 18 hours +/-
synoptic relatively brief event.
This relatively modest event came on the heels of the season's most widespread synoptic event on the 13th and 14th of February
which dropped a solid 12 to 18 inches across most of the region, especially the Finger Lakes and Genesee Valley. A northwest flow followed this storm and
set up some narrow but intense bands from far northeast Wayne county into Oswego county. The activity weakened and sheared out by
mid morning of 16th as wind fields became unfavorable.
The event was brief and localized, but did drop some heavy snow, aggravating the situation from the synoptic event. It therefore earns
two ** stars.
