By Tina Lam, Detroit Free Press Aug. 4--After a parched summer last year that left docks stranded and boat propellers scraping sandy shallows, the Great Lakes are blissfully -- and surprisingly -- full again this year. Heavy snow and rains since last winter have made the lakes rise. Scientists aren't sure whether this will last, but they're hopeful. The temperatures, moisture and ice cover next winter will be critical. "If we get two more good, normal winters with normal precipitation,...

By Mary Ann Grossmann, Pioneer Press, St. Paul, Minn. Jul. 6--For Minnesotans, "up north" is not a specific place. It's an idea that lives in our hearts and imaginations. "Up north" could be as close as the Chisago chain of lakes or as distant as Lake of the Woods. For many of us, though, "up north" means Lake Superior, its North Shore and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Today, we celebrate this giant inland sea and the cities that surround it with a roundup of worthy books...

By Albert Ching, The Tribune, Mesa, Ariz. Jul. 4--BRAVE THE FOOD: We all know the stereotypes about British food -- specifically, that it's terrible -- but you can decide for yourself with the fish and chips, bangers and mash and bread pudding at the British Open Pub in Scottsdale. There's also the Cornish Pasty Co. in Tempe, which features pasties (the name refers to the food, not the complexion of your average Briton), which are basically fancy Hot Pockets that originate from the...

By JANE HAASE ONE predicted effect of the current credit crunch is that we are likely to tighten our belts when it comes to foreign travel and holiday much closer to home. And having just spent a week in Cornwall, that's not such a bad thing. It's a chance form any, who for too long have been seduced by the promise of good weather abroad (which is no guarantee at all, just look at Coleen and Wayne's big day), to rediscover the delights of a British seaside holiday. In the past when...

2012-10-08 10:05:31

The Pacific Northwest low moves on shore typically in or around the Portland and Seattle area.

This same area will see coastal rains and heavy mountain snows in the winter. When the system arrives at location B, the Rockies, due to topographic enhancement it can produce heavy rain/t-storms in the summer time, while during the winter this same area can see...

The Great Lakes And Their Impact On The Weather
2012-07-23 08:58:48

The Great lakes have a huge impact in the weather for the cities that are near the lakes. In the fall and early winter months the lakes can create intense snowfall events known as “Lake Effect Snow”. The reason that this occurs has to do with the water temps of the lakes and also the temps of the air that is moving across them. When an Alberta Clipper system forms in Canada and moves Southeastward towards the US, it brings that cold air and strong Northwest winds over the warmer waters....

The snowbelt is a North American region that lies downwind of the Great lakes, where heavy snowfall is common on mostly the eastern and southern shores of the Great Lakes. Lake-effect snow is caused by cold air picking up moisture while crossing the lake and then releasing it as snow when the air cools over land. Throughout much of the winter, lakes produce lake-effect snow and continuously cloudy skies. This phenomenon continues as long as the air temperature is colder than the water...
