Most of the early season snows pile up deeper the further you are from the lake- while still in the lake effect belt. However, we are also in late October, rather than early October, so this is not quite an early season storm. Even so, I would suspect that areas further inland (Twin Lakes, Rockland) might fare better with snowfall from the Sunday/Monday event.

It will be because of the lakes influence, not really wind direction. Lake will cause liquid precip to fall for periods of the event, which will hold down snowfall amounts.

The majority of the energy passed to the west and south of the UP and thus the atmosphere really struggled to make any snow in our neck of the woods. Places like MN, WI, northeast IA and even northern IL got snow instead!

Fine with me, October snow is about as useful as you-know-what's on a bull!
