Another round of heavy lake effect snow is already underway near Lake Superior and Michigan. Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and western lower Michigan. Some areas may see a foot as the cold air spills across the warm lake waters, creating the lake effect snow with west to northwest winds.

A cold front and low pressure center will move east into New England and Canada Tuesday. By Tuesday night into Wednesday, the lake effect snow machine will fire again for Lake Erie and Ontario as the cold air spreads to the east. 1 to 2 feet are possible, especially near Erie, PA and east of Rochester, NY.
