Today’s weather story from the National Weather Service:
Accumulating snow expected
One more day of above normal temperatures is in store today with highs reaching into the 40s, despite increasing cloud cover.
A few light rain or snow showers are possible this evening, with better chances for snow arriving towards Monday morning. Confidence remains high in an extended period of accumulating snowfall Monday through Wednesday as low pressure remains over the eastern Great Lakes.
The highest snow amounts are expected in the favored lake effect region. The map shown on the graphic depicts total forecasted snowfall through a 72 hour period starting Monday morning and ending Wednesday afternoon. The heaviest snow rates are expected to occur Tuesday into Wednesday. Those planning travel across the area through the first half of this week should prepare for hazardous travel conditions with significant impacts anticipated as you move closer to Lake Michigan.
