Weather Outlook: Even colder next week with more lake effect

Weather Outlook: Even colder next week with more lake effect

An additional 1 to 2 inches of snow is possible in Livingston County on Thursday. Other areas will see snow showers beginning in the afternoon, and continuing through the evening and overnight.

Lake-effect snow will initially develop Tuesday afternoon in the Upper Peninsula of MI following the passage of the cold front. Primarily this impacts states that border the Great Lakes, but sometimes we can get lake effect snow bands to reach western MA. This will mark the leading edge of a notable change in our weather pattern, bringing to an end the long series of relatively mild but not excessively warm days we have had and replacing it with the breezy winter chill.

Those counties are expecting heavy lake effect snow and very hard travel. This is not a big snow accumulation event, but the chances of snow look better.

Snows are back on Monday. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow, and snow will quickly accumulate. Coverage will be almost 80% of areas from I-70 northward on Monday.

First, a fast-moving area of low pressure could graze parts of the East Coast with light snow late this week.

Periods of snow Saturday. We see scattered little bits of action here and there, more nuisance than anything else but it adds up.
