Heavy Lake Effect Snow Continues Around the Great Lakes

14 Dec 2016, 4:08 pm

Heavy lake effect snow continues across the Great Lakes and will remain through Friday. Snow squalls are producing accumulation rates of 1 to 2 inches an hour, creating low visibility and poor travel conditions.

Blizzard Warnings continue in Western Upper Michigan, with Lake Effect Snow Warnings in areas of Western New York.

Additional snowfall accumulations of more than a foot are possible in the heaviest snow bands. As a cold front swings into the Great Lakes through tomorrow, snowfall rates will remain high in the heaviest belts.

As another trough swings through Thursday into Friday, the snow squalls will continue. A low pressure center approaching from the west on Friday afternoon will bring an temporary end to the lake effect snows.
