SNOW-VEMBER: Recapping early-season storm that brought mixed precip, snow to Finger Lakes

Looking Back: Recapping Veterans Day Storm

Meteorologist Michael Gouldrick on Twitter.

Meteorologists say it stayed a little warmer than expected for a longer period of time on Veterans Day, which set the stage for mixed precipitation and lighter snowfall totals in the central parts of the Finger Lakes.

Communities in Ontario, Yates, and Seneca counties, which were in a Winter Storm Warning throughout the Veterans Day Storm did not see a complete transition to snow until the overnight hours. This kept snowfall totals generally below the initially-forecasted 6-10 inch range.

Locations further west in the region – and parts of Western New York – saw the most-significant snowfall totals with this particular event. Some locations, because of that slight change in track, which allowed parts of the Finger Lakes to see less snow – actually received more than forecasted.

We will update this story with official snowfall totals from the National Weather Service as they’re reported later this morning. For the latest forecast information – check out the resources below – or visit the Weather Center.
