Love snow? You may be in luck this season. Halloween has come and gone and that means we start to focus on the Holidays and that normally means cooler weather. But this year things are starting a little differently in New York State.

Most of the forecasts are calling for warm, and possible record, temperatures for the first few days of the new month. While most are getting the Christmas lights out, there are some who are still enjoying their patio!

But the warm weather is keeping the Great Lakes warm as well. If you grew up near one of them or know anything about how lake effect weather works, you know that warm water and cold air are the perfect combination for big amounts of snow. The water temperature in both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario is still holding steady in the mid 50's.

1059 AM EDT Mon Oct 31 2022 The water temperature off Buffalo is 57 degrees.

1059 AM EDT Mon Oct 31 2022 The water temperature off Rochester is 55 degrees.

It doesn't take much cool air either to have an impact. Yes, we get lake enhanced rains. But when we get air that drops to the lower 30's and the wind is just right, boom snow piles up...fast! For the next few days it looks like we won't need a shovel but you snow it's coming and I am ready!

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
