A fast moving cold front crossed the central-eastern US during the weekend, bringing cold weather and the first relevant snowfall for the current winter season. The low pressure system crossed the Midwest first, causing stormy and icy conditions over the Great Plains and accumulating up to 7-10 cm of snow over North Dakota and Minnesota. The front is now moving across the Great Lakes area, where abundant lake-effect snow is expected to fall on the leeward shores of all five major lakes. The well-above average water temperature will contribute to heavier precipitation, feeding more moisture and energy into the system.
The heaviest accumulations (up to 10-15cm) are expected to fall today, Monday, on the eastern shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, among the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and upstate New York. Also some notable cities such as Cleveland, OH and Buffalo, NY will see relevant amounts of snow.
AccuWeather forecasters say residents in the Northeast will experience a serious case of weather whiplash this week as some areas could approach the 70s later this week before temperatures plummet yet again. https://t.co/7VOCSFOikI— AccuWeather (@accuweather) November 15, 2021
