All You Ever Wanted To Know About Lake-effect Snow

Thomas Niziol
The Weather Channel
Atlanta, GA


This presentation will address the basics behind the development of lake-effect snow, where in the world lake-effect snow occurs and how the forecasting of these mesoscale  storms have changed throughout the years.  We cannot talk snow without discussing some of the most amazing lake-effect snow storms that have occurred in the past few decades, so we will have some fun with that as well.  Finally I will address some of the recent research efforts that have taken place and how that information is opening the door to a better understanding of these amazing winter events.
