Travel Trouble

Even after the snow is done from the storm system, lake-effect snows will continue into Monday and Tuesday.

The bitterly cold arctic air will flow over the unfrozen Great Lakes, unleashing another round of heavy snow.  Just like last week, the same areas will get targeted.

Northwest Indiana, southwest Michigan, northeast Ohio, northwest Pennsylvania, and northwest New York will see multiple hours of heavy lake-effect snow bands.

Final totals by late Tuesday (including the storm snow) could be in the range of 2 to 3 feet in some areas. 

While not as heavy, Erie and Huron counties could receive 1-3" of accumulation Monday evening with locally higher amounts.  Some additional light snow is possible Tuesday before the lake-effect shuts off.
