Feet of Lake-Effect Snow is Burying Towns Around The Great Lakes

One of the biggest lake-effect snow events in memory is burying towns to the east and southeast of the Great Lakes. In some locations 3-4 feet of snow has already fallen. Where these bands persist, 5 feet or more of snow is predicted to fall by the end of the week.

“The coldest air of the season so far will continue to trigger bands of very heavy snow downwind of the Great Lakes into the middle of the week and beyond. The snow will be blinding in some areas, falling at the rate of 3-5 inches per hour, and can be accompanied by gusty winds, thunder and lightning. Travel will be impossible for a time in the heaviest bands of snow.

The bands of snow will shift slowly southward during Tuesday night into early Wednesday, before shifting northward. Lake-effect snow will re-energize on Thursday after a weak storm system with general light snow swings through at midweek.” – accuweather.com
