Heavy Lake-Effect Snow Starts Tonight

WEST MICHIGAN — (FOX 17) — Another blast of Arctic air is invading Michigan tonight, and that means another round of heavy lake-effect snow.

Because winds are from the north, this targets areas right along the lakeshore. Van Buren, Oceana, and Mason Counties are under a lake-effect snow advisory from Midnight tonight until 1AM Thursday. Accumulations in this area should be in the 3 to 6 inch range.

However, as you can see from this image, the heaviest snow will target far Southwest Lower Michigan and Northern Indiana. There is a lake-effect snow warning in effect for Berrien County, as well as adjoining areas in Indiana. Over a foot of snow is possible in these areas. Traveling to Chicago later tonight and Wednesday could be tricky in these snow bands.

    Can you update this page? It shows 26 Nov date and is a different system than what is going on now. Sort of confusing trying to see which article accurately describes the snowfall amounts we might get this week.
