  • Meadville, PA is part of what is called a Snowbelt Region

Meadville, PA is down wind of Lake Erie. When cold air moves across the warm water of the lake it picks up moisture. When this air reaches land it releases this moisture usually in the form of snow. The Great Lakes will produce this "Lake effect snow" throughout the winter months, as well as keeping cloudy skies in the forecast. As you can see on the graph above, there are few days with sunny skies during the winter months.

I love your maps. There is a lot of information in them plus they are very easy to interpret.

I think it would have been interesting to get a brief explanation on this page about the snow-belt effect. I lived in Erie for many years and saw the discrepency of total snowfall amount between the city of Erie and areas south of I 90.
