Cold air is back in the forecast! As it moves in from the northwest over the Great Lakes, lake effect snow will pick back up Sunday into Monday.
Winter weather alerts are in place from Lake Superior to Lake Ontario. This is mostly along the lakeshores where banding snowfall and difficult travel is expected. As the cold air moves over the eastern Great Lakes, it will bring heavy lake-effect to western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania, especially tonight and early Monday.
The cold front that has passed over the region and this will allow the cold air from Canada to keep generating heavy lake effect snow. Here is a look at the timing across the northern and eastern Great Lakes.
Northern Great Lakes
