More Lake Effect Snow Ahead for the Great Lakes

1 Feb 2018, 9:55 am

Lake effect snow showers moving across Michigan will produce up to 6″ of new snowfall accumulation by Friday. The heaviest bands will be found in eastern Upper Michigan and northern Lower Michigan. Winter Weather Advisories remain in effect for the area.

As a fast moving low pressure center moves east of the Great Lakes, a cold front dropping southward will funnel in cold air throughout the region. This will fuel the lake effect snow as a strong high pressure center in the Upper Midwest pushes cold northwest winds over the lakes. The snow showers will diminish this weekend with a wind shift.
