A major lake-effect event set up starting late on November 19, 2016 and continuing more prominently through the 20th. The heaviest total reported was in Redfield, New York at 54.5 inches. Other significant totals include Osceola at 48 inches, Binghamton at 27.6 inches, Syracuse at 25.1 inches and Watertown at 18.0 inches. Interestingly this event was preceded by record warmth. Watertown hit 72 on the 19th breaking the record of 70. But the heavy snowfall put an end to thoughts of a lingering warm autumn, roads were closed in many areas for a better part of the week.
