Record #119602:

Does lake-effect snow extend to the mountains of West Virginia? / Thomas W. Schmidlin.

Title: Does lake-effect snow extend to the mountains of West Virginia? / Thomas W. Schmidlin.
Author(s): Schmidlin, Thomas W.
Date: 1992.
In: Eastern Snow Conference. Proceedings. (1992.), Vol. 49th Annual Meeting (1992)
Abstract: Discusses claim that these storms make significant contributions to 450 cm annual snowfall of mountains that are 400 km south of Great Lakes. 38 snow storms of 15 cm or more were identified that were not caused by synoptic-scale precipitation processes. During these events, wind was from north and snow also fell in snowbelt adjacent to Lake Erie, leading to conclusion that moisture for these events is partly of Great Lakes origin and extracted by orography. Contribution is calculated to be 25 to 30% of total snowfall at Snowshoe, with greatest contribution in December and March.
