Big snows continue to miss us

Persistent lake-effect snow bands will continue to add accumulation across parts of NE Ohio, NW PA & NY, SW Michigan, NW Indiana, and near the thumb of Michigan.

The snow in NW Indiana and extreme SW Michigan has been steady at times the last few days.  By the time the lake-effect winds down late Sunday, some sections may have over 2 feet of snow on the ground.

The next item of interest is a big winter storm that will target the Plains and the southeastern United States.  Parts of the deep south could pick up over 6 inches of snow Sunday into Monday.  This storm will track south of our area and only provide light snow Tuesday into Wednesday.  (BTW -- in the map below, the areas shaded in Michigan & Ohio are from the lake-effect snows described above)
