Snow in the Great Lakes and Northeast

13 Dec 2017, 3:56 pm

A fast moving Alberta Clipper type low pressure center is bringing a round of snow from the Upper Midwest into the Northeast. As the wind turns northwesterly behind the low, snowfall is being enhanced by the Great Lakes. Totals as high as 6″ are possible along the path of the low from near Cleveland to Detroit to Green Bay. In the lake effect snow belts, 1 to 2 feet is possible.

The system is moving quickly. Accumulations will diminish in the western Great Lakes tonight and come to an end into the Northeast Thursday afternoon. Snow showers will continue in the lake effect areas into this weekend, but accumulations will be less.
