Latest aviation discussion:

Streamers of lake effect snow will persist off the Great Lakes
today, and even the Finger Lakes at times this morning. Between
lake effect bands, mostly VFR conditions will occur or at worst
a high end MVFR deck. But within the bands, because this Arctic
air mass has temperatures in the cloud layer at ideal values for
snow crystal growth, IFR visibility will become common, and in 
the case of KSYR below alternate minimums at times. Winds will 
be west to west-northwest, picking up to mid teens knots 
sustained with gusts reaching to 25-30 knots especially during 
the daytime hours. This will also pose a blowing-drifting snow 
problem, itself perhaps reducing visibilities especially KSYR- 
KRME, since the snow is very dry and fluffy. Though lake effect 
snow issues will confine themselves to mainly just KSYR-KRME by 
mid morning, unfortunately another clipper system appears likely
to bring a visibility-restricting light snow into the region 
between 03Z-06Z Thursday. Winds will also slacken this evening 
while backing southwesterly.


Late Wednesday night through Thursday night...Clipper will 
finish bringing light snow/restrictions late Wednesday night up
to 12Z Thursday or so, but then lake effect snow will probably 
again visit KSYR-KRME during the day, lingering Thursday night.

Thursday night through Sunday...Still multiple chances for snow
showers/intermittent restrictions, from weak passing systems.
