: It’s still snowing in Erie: 113 inches this month and more coming

There’s little relief in sight for residents of Erie, Penn., which has had more than 113 inches of snow this month — and it’s still snowing.

The National Weather Service is forecasting another 4 to 8 inches on Saturday and another 1 to 3 inches overnight. Snow showers remain in the forecast for the next week, including the possibility of another 1 to 3 inches of snow on New Year’s Day.

Erie has been smothered with the white stuff this week, including 34 inches on Christmas Day and another 26.5 inches the next day, shattering records. It’s called lake-effect snow, caused by cold air moving over relatively warm water, in this case Lake Erie.

And earlier in the week:

Erie has now had 113.3 inches of snow in December, including nearly 10 inches since early Friday, according to GoErie.com. The season total is 113.8 inches. That’s already outdone Boston’s headline-grabbing record snowfall of 2014-2015, which topped 110 inches.

Plow operators in Erie are still working 12-hour shifts trying to clear the roads. Children are scheduled to go back to school on Tuesday.
