A storm system that dumped more than a foot of snow and produced blizzard conditions over portions of the Midwest this weekend is bringing heavy snow to the eastern Great Lakes and Northeast. Winter Storm Warnings extend from northwestern Pennsylvania to northern Maine. Some areas may see a foot of snow, especially in higher elevations of New England and around the lake enhanced snow belts in the Great Lakes.
The low pressure center will move across the Northeast today (Tuesday) and into the Atlantic Ocean Wednesday. Snow, heavy at times, will continue to push through the Northeast today with additional accumulations. The wind will be strong with gusts to 40 mph at times, reducing visibility in blowing snow. Travel will remain difficult in the winter weather alert areas.
Behind the low, a trough of low pressure will cross the Great Lakes, further enhancing lake effect snow along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. More than a foot of snow may fall in the favored lake effect snow belts.
