Lake effect snow, heavy at times before tapering off Tuesday

28

Lake effect snow continues over the northwest wind belts of the Upper Peninsula Monday night, with heavy bands concentrated in the eastern counties. An additional 2″ or more snowfall expected — view NWS alerts in effect HERE. The combination of gusty winds and fine, powdery snow can lead to patchy blowing and/or drifting snow and poor road visibility.

Stiff winter breezes keep blustery conditions persistent throughout the week, plus snow chances remain on the active trend with a predominantly north to south jet stream guiding cold systems towards the Western Great Lakes.

Tuesday: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy with lake effect snow (LES) showers over the northwest wind belts, then diminishing in the afternoon; chance of patchy blowing snow and drifting snow; blustery
