Snow Slows from Great Lakes to Northeast

15 Nov 2021, 5:50 pm

After a weekend of snow from the Midwest and Great Lakes to the Northeast, our snow chances will continue to wind down. Isolated snow bands will continue across portions of the Great Lakes but this clipper low will say farewell by today (Monday).

Snow Recap

Snow reports since Sunday have been heaviest with our clipper system along with the lake-effect snow in Michigan.


Winter Weather Advisories continue for parts of Michigan where an additional 1″ – 3″ of accumulation is possible from lake effect snow. Parts of Maine with our strengthening coastal low will also see a few inches of snow into this evening.

Lake surface temperatures sit in the upper 40s and 50s. The wind blowing over these waters are much colder, this creates lake effect snow and rain surrounding the Great Lakes.


Lake-effect snow will continue to slowly wind down overnight. The dying system in the Ohio Valley will move eastward with light amounts of rain and snow. The majority of Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry with a gradual warm-up across the region.


Snow and rain accumulations for most will be kept to a minimum. Those along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario will have the best chance of a light accumulation.
