Researchers on a $4 million study of Lake Ontario lake effect snow packed up and headed home after collecting mountains of snow data in December 2013.  That data should help predict when and where lake-effect snow storms will hit in the future, said one of the researchers

"We're getting a better understanding of where lake effect is happening, why it's more intense or less intense and why the bands move over time," said Josh Wurman, president of the Severe Weather Research Center in Colorado, which was part of the study.  "The goal is being able to forecast these better."

About 100 researchers & scientists from Alabama to Wyoming converged on Tug Hill in early December for the study, funded by the National Science Foundation.  The study deployed truck-mounted radar, weather balloons & even a plane from the University of Wyoming that flew directly into the storms.  In six weeks of data-gathering, researchers encountered 24 lake-effect events, double what they predicted. 

"We picked a perfect year" Wurman said.  "We have more data than we had ever hoped for."  Some areas of Tug Hill received more than 15' of snow in December.  Among early findings:  Tug Hill snow can be drier and more powdery that Utah's mountain snow, and lightning during snow storms can extend farther inland than previously thought.

After reading the above information, those of us who have lived in the Tug Hill area for years have known all along that we get the best lake effect snow.
