Wow, just saw the 12z 3km NAM forecasting more than 5 feet off Lake Ontario over the next 60 hours. The thought of averaging 1" per hour for several consecutive days makes me drool. Enjoy and stay safe @Mike W IN ALTMAR

The event doesn't start for me till tomorrow into friday..

I'm right on the southern fringes so it is a really tough call, as usual all the meso-models show something different..

The 3k nam went from a couple inches to a few feet in about 10 miles lol

NWS calling for 16"-26" so we'll see..At the end of the day the Lake is going to do what it wants..

I live 6miles ESE of Pulaski..

Absolutely amazing!!!

Two comments: 1). Some of those views actually looked like he was in a hurricane.   2).  Gotta love the people that venture out in weather like that wearing only a hoodie!

WNW flow keeping everything south, southern part of the county..

Picked up a quick a couple inches on it's way down, real issue is the wind, gusting 40-60mph..True blizzard conditions.. :classic_ninja:

Lots of ice on Erie. It certainly reduces the amount of LES but water vapor and heat can still be transported thru the ice resulting in some LES. Cracks in the ice also allow for LES development. Case in point, Buffalo area on Jan 30. 

Here’s some further reading.
