it is important to note that Freezing level is the altitude at which the 0°C isotherm is reached. But this is in a free atmosphere not near to the ground. So in mountain if the Freezing level is at 1500m it is not sure that the local temperature at 2m above ground level is the same. It is mainly an indication of temperature of the air mass. But it is useful to know it as it shows when locally the rain turns to snowfall
It is interesting to look at Airgram as it gives an idea of the 0°C isotherm in the next days at a location.
Grazie Paolo, great article!
Lake effect snow is also common across the Great Lakes region (USA)
when cold air from Canada, moves across the open waters of the Great Lakes.
Wind direction is a key component in determining which areas will receive lake effect snow. Heavy snow may be falling in one location, while the sun may be shining just a mile or two away in either direction. The physical geography of the land and water is also important.
Hi @seb-schmied, thank you for your feedback and sorry about the delay with our response. We are happy that you like Windy! :-) As to your suggestion, I personally see this as a good idea. Best regards ~ Marie
