More Snow Coming This Week
High-impact, wind-driven snow is going to affect all of Michigan on Monday night and Tuesday. Then very heavy lake effect will develop Tuesday and dump lots of snow on the cities closest to Lake Michigan.
A storm system now in Canada is going to move southeast and rapidly strengthen right over Michigan tonight. The colder air will give this snow a powdery nature. With wind gusts over 30 mph Tuesday, dangerous blowing snow will be a big issue.
The snow will start late this afternoon in far southwest Lower Michigan, and overspread all of Michigan overnight. The widespread snow will continue into Tuesday afternoon. As the widespread snow winds down Tuesday afternoon, very heavy lake effect will develop.
The general, widespread snow tonight and Tuesday will not be super heavy by Michigan's winter standards. All of us can expect 2 to 4 inches of snow from tonight in Lansing and Central Michigan and Tuesday's storm.
