A quick-moving Alberta Clipper will usher in a few inches of snow to the Midwest now through Monday.  Generally speaking, snow totals will be on the lighter side.  Many areas will pick up 1 to 3 inches.  Some locations in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana may see up to 6 inches before the system exits the region Monday night.  Another arctic blast will accompany the snow, keeping roads and sidewalks slippery for a few days. With a north-northeast wind, counties along the shore of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin can expect lake-enhanced snowfall.  Much like lake-effect snow, lake-enhanced snow uses evaporated Great Lakes water to "enhance" snowfall rates and totals. Milwaukee may very well exceed 6 inches of snow, while some lake shore communities in northeast Wisconsin may accumulate 12 inches. Other cities, such as Chicago and Indianapolis, should expect several inches of new accumulation. Much of the Midwest, like Cincinnati, can expect a general 1 to 3 inches of snow.  That will still make those morning and evening commutes tricky.  Luckily, Monday is Martin Luther King Day and many people are off from school and work. Keep it tuned to WeatherNation for the latest on this wintry system as well as another that will impact southern states like Texas. -Meteorologist Joe Astolfi
