Lake Effect Snows Across the Great Lakes
As cold winds sweep across the Great Lakes, lake effect snow bands will continue to develop throughout the region. Alerts have been issued from Lake Superior to Lake Ontario.
Up to 5″ of snow is possible in the alert areas downstream of the lakes by early Thursday. Along Minnesota’s North Shore, more than 6″ of lake enhanced snow is possible as a system approaches from the west through Thursday.
Locally intense bands of lake effect snow will develop on and off over the next 24 hours throughout the Great Lakes into this evening. As a storm system approaches from the West, temperatures will warm and the wind direction will shift. This will bring an end to the lake effect snow in most areas, although enhanced snows will develop in Minnesota’s Arrowhead.
If you have travel plans in the alert areas across the Great Lakes, be sure to check ahead on travel conditions and stay tuned to WeatherNation on-air and online for forecast updates.
