You could hardly put together a better synoptic weather set-up for a HUGE lake effect snow event than what happened today in Buffalo.

It comes at a time when computer power is making it possible to run numerical weather models at resolutions we’ve only dreamed of in the past. NOAA is already running a model with a resolution of 3km (the HRRR), and the UK Met office just bought …
