    The lake-effect snow machine was activated on Sunday, resulting in heavy snow piling up downwind of the Great Lakes. As of early this morning, Ashville, N.Y., in extreme southwestern New York, was blanketed by 15.0 inches. Forestport, N.Y., downwind of Lake Ontario, received 7.0 inches in only two hours.

    Lake-effect snow will persist into Tuesday, adding to these totals. An additional 6 to 12 inches is forecast immediately downwind of all five lakes. It is not out of the question that amounts could exceed a foot.

    Up to a foot of snow could fall today in the mountains of West Virginia with the passage of a clipper. With the cold air in place, moisture getting pushed up the western slopes of the mountains will enhance the snowfall totals.
