Question and answer
I live in the city. It's always warmer in the city, compared to other areas, even at night. Why is that? The rain shadow effect makes surrounding areas cool and moist and the city warm and dry. Buildings absorb and retain heat from the Sun, producing the urban heat island effect. Lake effect snow only affects areas outside of the city. The city receives lake effect snow.
