Illinois Weather Trivia for November 7th

11/7/2010
Areas near the Great Lakes frequently deal with lake-effect snow during the fall and winter. These snows are produced when cold air picks up moisture while traveling across the relatively warmer lake waters. The air then rises to form clouds and snow. Generally, these lake-effect snows are found along east or south shores of the Great Lakes, but a northeast wind will produce lake-effect snow in northeastern Illinois.
