Heavy Lake Effect Snow Continues

30 Dec 2016, 9:32 am

Lake effect snow continues in the Great Lakes with occasional heavy squalls. Low visibility and snow covered roads have been slowing travelers, especially in the snow bands of Northern Michigan and Upstate New York.

Lake Effect Snow Warnings and Winter Storm Warnings continue through midday in Michigan and into tonight across New York.

Snow totals have been over a foot in some of the heaviest snow belts. Brief intense bands may still produce 6-12″ of additional accumulations today, mainly downstream of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

A storm system moving into the Plains will bring in warmer air across Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, along with a wind shift. Lake effect snow will end in Michigan in the early afternoon. Squalls will continue for Lake Erie and Lake Ontario through this evening and will begin diminishing later tonight.
