Patchy light snow is possible across much of the eastern Great Lakes today as a weak clipper system moves across the region. Some lake effect snow is developing downwind of Lake Michigan, impacting western portions of the lower peninsula. Lake effect snow will also develop downwind of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario later this afternoon and this evening. The activity will continue through tonight.
Portions of northern OH, northwestern PA, and western NY could see significant accumulations through tonight. Outside of the lake effect areas, accumulations will be light.
The lake snows will continue Monday and Monday night downwind of the lakes with additional significant accumulations possible across the traditional snow belts.
Elsewhere, a stronger clipper will move through the Ohio Valley and lower lakes on Monday and Monday night producing another swath of snow across the area. Most locations outside of the snow belts will pick up an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow through Monday night. Isolated higher amounts are possible in areas where heavier bands can set up, especially across OH into western PA.
Another system will bring snow to much of the Great Lakes region late Tuesday into Wednesday.
