"Lake Effect" Snow Locations in North America
snows don't only occur on the Great lakes, but are common in other parts
of the country as well. One prime example is across Cape Cod on the
New England Coast. In that scenario, a huge High centered over the
province of Quebec, pumps a northeast to east flow of arctic air across
the ocean, including the warmer waters of the Gulf Stream. Although
not as common, this same type of snow can occur when east winds channel
up Long Island Sound, or southeast winds channel up Chesapeake Bay.
Finally, lake effect snows often occur off the Great Salt Lake in Utah
(don't worry though, the snow isn't salty!!).
