Winter Weather from the Great Lakes into the Northeast
29 Jan 2019 8:50 AM
An Alberta Clipper swinging through the Great Lakes is creating widespread travel problems. Winter weather alerts have been issued in the Northeast for heavy snow through Wednesday. Several winter weather alerts continue across the Great Lakes for heavy lake effect snow expected over the next few days. Alerts in the Upper Midwest are due to blowing snow, creating travel hazards.
Snow will move eastward as the low pushes from Canada into the Northeast. Heavy snow is likely, along with strong wind gusts.
The heaviest of the snow will be near the Great Lakes but the winds combined with the snow will still make for dangerous travel conditions. Some areas will see a foot of snow.
The snow and the wind will wrap up early this week but the bitter cold sticks around. Read more about the cold HERE.
