No Nor'easter for us, but Cold & Some Lake Snow

Written by John DiPasquale:

A nor'easter will develop this weekend, but it will really come together east of New England, & not directly affect us with any snow, but we will feel some strong winds, much colder air on the backside of this intensifying storm.  The result for us will be highs in the 20s Saturday & teens Sunday with some limited lake snows at times over the weekend.  Several inches of lake fluff will likely fall in spots this weekend, with it developing during the day Saturday, before a bit of a lull & then likely firing back up some late Saturday night into Sunday.  Roads will likely become slick at times this weekend, especially later Saturday & again late Saturday night into Sunday.  Wind chills will be in the single digits & teens Saturday, & around or just below 0 late Saturday night into Sunday.  Ouch!

The next system will come in late Monday night into Tuesday with some rain/mix ending as a bit of snow the way it looks now.  Wednesday into early Thursday should be blustery with some lake snows possible.  Late next week could be interesting, but that still a ways out, but as we all know the forecast will likely change a few times between now & then.  Stay tuned. 

Have a great night & weekend everyone!!

  1. hey, we are going to miss another East Coast storm. Skocker!!! Next weeks second system looks to come at us, split and most of the energy transfer to the coast as it looks now. In other words, NBD for us.

  2. Last storm was supposed to transfer to the coast and be NBD for us too.

  3. If the blocking gets too strong late next week the storm will get sheared apart, and whatever we get won't be of much consequence. This is a fear I had yesterday, and the newer model runs are starting to confirm that fear. I sincerely hope they change their tune at some point.

    On a semi related note, we have this:

    This bit really caught my eye:
    "I'm still waiting to see just when this early spring is coming. I'm not seeing much evidence of it right now!"

    Seems the developing blocking pattern might give us winter lovers more time than we thought at first...

  4. Both minor stormes next week will have little impact on us. The first system tuesday-wed will be a light mix to rain to very little snow. The next Friday system will shear a part before it gets here and have little impact.

  5. Anon you are right these systems are done for us. In fact this winter is now done. After this weekend we will be heading to the spring. We got 2 decent 10-12 inch storms and that is it. Get your lawn furniture and grill out.

  6. The flowering bulb in the flower garden are starting to pop. This is a reminder that winter IS on its way out. It wont be long and spring will be here, BUT NOT YET.

    I am still not excited about next weeks storms the Midwest look to be shoveling next week but not the northeast. I think there could be some significant lake snow in the area Tuesday night-Thursday.

    Overall this has been a much better winter for Hamlin than last winter. Not a blockbuster by any means but it has been rather snowy at times. Come march I will welcome spring with open arms but I don't think winter is going to give in like last season. Time will tell.

    2. I really do too, I was not joking. The snow melted and there they where. I love spring just as much as the winter but it is not quit time for it yet.

    Any thoughts on the Lake Snow Advisory just issued for Monroe County at 345pm?

  8. Hamlin, while I appreciate that you have done well most of us have not. This winter might be even worse in regards to snow. We are at 51" so far which is still 9" beind last years snowless winter. We might get a few inches of fake lake fluff tonight and tomorrow which will put us closer. We may end up under 70" of snow this year with no real storms in sight for us.

    1. A week ago we were nearly 15 ins ahead of last year at that time. This must be about the week we had the 1 storm last year.

      I still say we end up with 25-35 more. I just hope most of it comes before late March and then April starts dryer and mild. Not likely, but by April snow is a messy waste.

  9. There is another mesoscale vortex over the west end of the lake. This is the third time this season. I have never saw that many in one season, strange. The last one dumped a quick 6 inch in the western areas. We will have to see how it holds together and where it comes onshore.

  10. Overnight we got a quick 7-8" inch's here in Hamlin. This is much more than I thought we would get this weekend, a nice surprise.

  13. Very pretty winter morning. Looks like a snow globe outside my window. Got about 2-3ins overnight in NE Fairport.

  14. The storms this week still look like nothing. Winter is slowly leaving and spring is entering. Put the shovels away and get the racks out.

  17. This blog is as quiet as I have ever seen it. All the storms this week are rain producers and people want to argue with me thast spring is not here. No snow storms are in sight. Winter is over and spring has sprung. Lets all enjoy the nice weather.

  18. Never over until it is over. The latest GFS showed a decent storm on the coast for next Sunday/Monday time frame. Just need it to trend west and you never know.

  19. It definately does not look good for us snow lovers. No snow with either system. The one at the end of the week just falls apart before it even gets here. I am ready for spring though. It has been a cold winter with not much snow. 55" now. 45" below normal. March can go either way with snow. Usually the BIG storms happen early in the month. I say bring on baseball adn warm weather.
