Frigid winds blasted across the Northeast over the weekend, triggering heavy lake-effect snow downwind of the Great Lakes and in the Appalachians.
"The coldest air mass of the season moved into the Northeast and mid-Atlantic this weekend," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said. "The wind took the cold air across the Great Lakes, which are still relatively mild, resulting in widespread lake-effect snow."
