Episode Narrative A deepening area of low pressure moved across the Ohio valley and Pennsylvania before moving off the southern New England Coast during the afternoon of the 31st. Steady snow developed over the region and was accompanied by increasing northerly winds. Widespread snowfall amounts ranged from eight to fourteen inches during the eight hour event. The strong winds produced areas of blowing and drifting snow and resulted in significantly reduced visibilities. Some of the highest snowfall reports included: 14 inches at Walworth; 12 inches at Fairport; 11 inches at Lockport; 10 inches at Alden, Colden, Kenmore, Livonia, Penfield, and Warsaw; 9 inches at Sinclairville, Buffalo, Amherst, Clarence, Elma, Pavilion, Greece and Niagara Falls; and 8 inches at South Dayton, Montezuma, Avon, Mount Morris and Newark.
