Snow piles up over Tug Hill Plateau

As much 5 feet last three days

SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV - An impressive band of lake effect snow has brought some impressive snowfall to the Tug Hill Plateau the last 3 days.  Redfield in northeast Oswego County had 34” of snow Friday (through 5 pm) and a 3 day total of 64”

Many areas in northeast Oswego and southern Lewis counties had at least 3 feet of snow since Wednesday. 

There is a State of Emergency for Oswego County as of Friday night and a travel ban in the Redfield-Boylston areas.

This is the second major lake dumping since last week in the Tug Hill. Combined over the last 9 days Redfield has received 115” or almost 10 feet of snow.

However, this is not the biggest long-duration lake effect event for Redfield and the Tug Hill Plateau.  Back in February 2007, Redfield recorded 141” of lake effect snow over 9 days while many surrounding areas had at least 100”
