Snow showers developing today
Heaviest expected Tuesday through Thursday
(February 8, 2016) – Snow showers will develop and expand across the area over the next several days as colder air moves in. Accumulations today are expected to range from a dusting to around an inch in most locations, with some areas near Lake Michigan seeing upwards of 2″ by Tuesday morning. Daytime temperatures will remain near or just above freezing which may limit impacts to roads. However, some slick spots will still be possible on untreated roads, especially tonight as temperatures fall below freezing.
The majority of the snow accumulations depicted on the map will fall from Tuesday through Thursday. Some locations near Lake Michigan may end up with close to a foot of snow by Thursday morning, depending on the duration and location of the heavier snow bands. Untreated roads will become hazardous, with travel impacts expected in many areas.
Although the main focus is on the snowfall over the next several days, another blast of colder air could impact the Great Lakes for the upcoming weekend.
