Sometimes, you donít need a lake to get lake-effect snow. A complex of power plants will do the job just as well.
Meteorologists at the National Weather Serviceís office in Moon Township noticed something Tuesday night they apparently donít see too often ó a snow band, stretching for miles from western Beaver County across northern Allegheny County.
The band, which dropped a quick inch of snow in some places, didnít originate at Lake Erie.
It came from the power plants at Shippingport.
