There was an awesome view today from the visible satellite of the snowpack from yesterday's snow. Really shows how site specific this past event was, with elevation playing an extensive role. When comparing this to a topo map, there is certainly a very high correlation. River valleys can easily be spotted when looking closely. Total IMBY was 4.8".

This lake effect season produced very well for some areas, while not so much for others. In general for the entire Great Lakes region, I would rate it as average, maybe even a bit above average. I'm looking forward towards next season, especially considering we will have GOES16 for analysis for the first time. Should make for some great images next season!

Calendar check.....yup, it's May.

National Weather Service Albany NY
405 AM EDT Fri May 5 2017.

As the upper low wobbles a bit eastward, cooler air will begin
to filter in Saturday night into Sunday. There will be showers
around still, but their coverage will likely decrease compared
with Saturday. Impressively cold 850 mb temps filter in as the
upper low continues to wobble overhead, depicted as low as -10C
over Lake Ontario by 12Z Monday. This would be cold enough to
result in a lake response, as Lake Ontario surface temps are
around +7C.
With forecast lows in the upper 20s to upper 30s
Sunday night, p-type of snow or a rain/snow mix looks like a
good bet, especially above 1500 feet. Have introduced minor
accumulations across the Western Adirondacks, Catskills, and
