Lake Effect Snow
Lake Effect Snow is a highly regional and temporal phenomenon. Snow squalls from the Great Lakes can add 10s of centimetres of snow to a forecast and can be very dangerous to drivers.
Ice Storms are infrequent but very damaging and dangerous events where falling rain freezes as ice on power lines, trees, cars, homes, sidewalks, roads and highways.
