On Tuesday, ABC sent Good Morning America weathercaster Sam Champion (subscription required) to upstate New York to cover the lake effect snow. Now the other two networks have caught up, both showing the seven-foot accumulation in Oswego County caused by cold air passing over an unusually warm Lake Ontario. Unlike Champion, neither CBS' Kelly Wallace--"they are digging out and out and out…yet even this much snow is not a record here"--nor NBC's Peter Alexander--"forecasters are calling for two more feet over the next two days"--speculated that global warming may be a factor in exacerbating the lake effect.
