Erie Co. PA Snowfall

December 24-27, 2017

Did someone wish for a white Christmas?  Snow began on the evening of December 24, 2017 from a synoptic system moving across the Upper Ohio Valley.  By  Christmas morning, the lake effect snow began to pick up in intensity.  Just on Monday alone, the Erie International Airport received almost 34 inches of snow.  The prolonged westerly flow across the open waters of Lake Erie continued into Tuesday with another 26.5" of snow falling.  Winds finally began to shift and with the additional 3.6" they received Wednesday, their storm total snowfall was 65.9 inches!
