New Lake Effect Snowstorm Pounding Buffalo With an Additional 2 - 3 Feet of Snow

Dr. Jeff Masters, November 20, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

A new lake effect snowstorm is pummeling snow-weary Buffalo, New York once again, where over a foot of new snow has fallen over regions that received five feet of snow on Tuesday. A persistent band of heavy snow coming off of the relatively warm waters of Lake Erie has settled over the southern and eastern suburbs of Buffalo, delivering prodigious snows of 3 - 5" per hour.

IPCC Synthesis Report: What’s Actually in It?

Dr. Ricky Rood, November 16, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

As we discussed the report in class the message that emerged from the report is that if we do not reduce our carbon dioxide emissions by several 10s of percent, in the next 1 – 3 decades, then the warming and its impacts will become large enough that adaptation is not incremental; that is, adaptation will not, simply, be modifying what we know how to do. In some cases adaptation will not be possible – we will have to do something new, something different. It is also true that as the warming gets larger, we move outside of the range or parameters on which our models were trained. Therefore, model guidance becomes more unreliable

The Science of Barometric Pressure, Part II

Jim Root, November 20, 2014

Professional Bass Angler

In my last blog post I introduced the facts of Barometric Pressure (BP) as they relate to fishing, and offered some tips as to how it may relate to behavior and eating habits for bass in North America. Here in part 2 of that piece I'm going to detail how Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass relate to different BPs and their changes at my favorite body of water and frequent stop on the Bassmaster Elite Series and host to the second Bass Pro Shops Northern Open trail for 2015, the legendary Lake Oneida in Syracuse NY.

Will the Real Polar Vortex Stand Up?

Dr. Marshall Shepherd, November 18, 2014

2013 President, American Meteorological Society
Director of Atmospheric Sciences, Univ. of Georgia

If you follow meteorology, you are aware that even weather terms get “15 Minutes of Fame”. In the late 1990s, it was “El Nino”. A few years ago, “Derecho” made it onto the big screen. Mor...

Greatest 24-hour Snowfall on Record for the U.S.?

Christopher C. Burt, November 14, 2014

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

This past week some exceptional snowfall amounts were reported in northern Wisconsin (50.1” at Gile) and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (42.5” at Ishpeming 7 NNW) largely the result of some intense lake-effect snow squalls coming off Lake Superior. The accumulations occurred over approximately a 96-hour period from November 11-14. Amazing as these totals were they couldn’t compare to the official U.S. record of 75.8” at Silver Lake, Colorado in 24 hours on April 14-15, 1921, or another contender for such: the 78” at Mile 47 Camp in Alaska on February 7, 1963.UPDATE: An amazing 65" of snow, almost all, if not all, of this occurred between 10 p.m. Nov. 17 and 10 p.m. Nov. 18 at a site(s) just south and east of Buffalo. These snow depth reports are not 'official' but are obviously accurate given the video and photographic evidence.
