The region has a continental climate heavily influenced by both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
The presence of the lakes allows for fruit growing and wine production along areas adjacent to both lakes which extend the growing season. Thanks in part to breezes blowing over Lakes Erie and Ontario (which are usually cooler than the air temperature in the summer), most of WNY enjoy generally cooler and more comfortable summers than other regions in the same climatic zone.
If it were counted as a single area, the population of WNY would number 2.5 million.
