    Warming Trend for the Great Lakes and Northeast

    In this video, we look at the expected progression toward milder weather, then continue into next week when things change.

    Great Lakes temperatures continue to fall. Reading are mostly in the chilly upper 30s and 40s on Lake Superior but as high as the 50s on Lake Erie.


    To get heavy lake-effect snow going, it typically requires at least a 23-degree temperature difference between the lake surface and the air above the lake. At present, an air mass with temperatures in the 20s would be sufficient for fueling lake-effect snow.
