Lake-Effect Snow Falls Across Nineveh, New York

Heavy lake-effect snow fell across Nineveh, New York, on March 14.

Video filmed by Justin Brookes shows the heavy flakes falling on a number of dwellings and vehicles located near the Susquehanna River.

“It’s more common in November/December [to see this] than it is early March,” Brookes told Storyful, “but we’ve had a fairly mild winter up here in the north east. So the lakes are still producing. These squalls today were coming off Lake Ontario from the winds coming out of the north.”

Lake-effect snow occurs when cold air, often originating from Canada, moves across the open waters of the Great Lakes according to the National Weather Service.
