That cold air will pour in over the (relatively) warmer waters of the Great Lakes. As this occurs, as it does almost every fall, light rain and snow develops downwind of the Lakes.

Areas as far south as West Virginia may also experience light snow through the weekend, as the chilly air plows through. Here’s a look at how much snow will fall through Sunday evening.
