Gusty Winds And Some Snow

January 31st, 2013 at 11:16 am by under Weather

Gusty winds combine with Nordic air!

Many times when we see a change as big as we just experienced it doesn’t go that smoothly. We do experience side effects and usually it is gusty winds. That’s something we’ve had to deal with in many ways Thursday. First the winds have been gusting up to 40 mph. Here are the peak wind gusts for Thursday so far.

The other problem has been lake effect snow. The gusty west winds have acted as a perfect 'fetch' 
to bring lake moisture to much of our area. While most locations reported a dusting. 
here at the station we saw about .8".
