After a warm and quiet Autumn, snow has been moving through the Great Lakes and mountains of the Northeast this weekend with more on the way. As a low pressure center spins away to the north, moisture and cold air will continue to drop across the region. Some areas could easily see another foot of snow into Tuesday, mainly in the lake effect snow belts.
The snow hit Michigan first, with some areas seeing almost a foot of snow Saturday into Sunday.
The snow started to move into snow belts and mountains of New York and Pennsylvania into Sunday. More is on the way into this evening.
With the low to the north spinning moisture and energy across the mountains, the higher elevations of Massachusetts and Vermont picked up significant snow accumulations as well.
Winter Storm Warnings and Lake Effect Snow Warnings continue for the snow belts and highest elevations.
The wind will be brisk as well, creating some blowing and drifting snow. Even where the snow isn’t falling, wind gusts above 30 mph are possible for several of the big cities of the Northeast and New England.
Be sure to check on the latest road conditions and radar before travelling through the areas under advisories and warnings. Stay tuned to WeatherNation for updates.
