Lakewood Weather & Climate

Western New York has a four season climate that is somewhat influenced by the Great Lakes. Winters are generally cloudy, cold and snowy, but are changeable and include frequent thaws and rain, as well. Snow covers the ground usually from Christmas into early March, but a period when the ground is bare is also not uncommon. Over half of the annual snowfall comes from "lake effect" snows and is very localized. Spring comes slowly to western New York. The ice pack on Lake Erie does not usually go away until mid April and the lake remains chilly through most of May. Summers are pleasant, with warm temperatures and moderate humidity. Autumn is very nice, but brief in the Niagara Falls area. The first frost can be expected in late September over interior sections, but not until mid October in the Buffalo metro area.
