The next weather system is close on the heals of our lake effect snow. A fast-moving weather system will bring its snow Sunday morning and lay out a corridor of 1-3″ of the white stuff for most. This is an “equal opportunity” snow. There will be pockets that pick up 4-5″.

The big news will be the arctic plunge mid and late week. The winds aloft show a chunk of the “Polar Vortex” breaking off and seeping into the northern part of the Lower 48. Single-digit overnight lows and lake effect snow are a pretty good bet. Stay tuned!
