are still pointing to a Colorado low looks to bring some light to moderate
snows to the central and portions of the S. Midwest Sunday, with cold and
LES to get going as we head through the end of this week into the weekend
and continue into next week.
will be fairly quiet across the region for most of today and then the next
system will arrive for later today and tomorrow and looks to bring a bit of
light snow to the far northern Midwest. It looks like most of the energy and
moisture will pass to the north of the Midwest and supply areas north of
Lake Superior with the 2-5” that was to fall in the far northern Midwest.
An inch or two will be possible in the far northern Midwest tonight and
early tomorrow, but that looks to be about it.
then look to quiet down as far as system snows go by later tomorrow into
Friday and Saturday, with some lake effect getting going in the UP, but at a
pace of a couple of inches every 24 hours or so.
will running above average in all of the region today, including above
freezing temps in much of the region. Temps will then begin to fall to below
average as we head through the day tomorrow into Friday and by the weekend,
the freeze line will be shoved down into the central Midwest.
are growing indications that an area of low pressure will develop in CO on
Saturday and head east into the OH River Valley by Sunday. It is still far
enough out in the forecast to be locking in the exact totals with the system
snows Sun-Mon, although totals at this point still look to be in the 3-6”
range across much of IA, the northern 3/4ths of IL, IN and OH as well as
southern sections of WI and MI, with some totals possibly more than 6” in
some sections of IL, IN and OH.
will then quiet down in most of the region for next week, with a few weak
clipper systems to bring some light snows to the northern ˝ of the region
from time to time.
other snow story in this time frame will be the cold air that will flow
across the mostly open waters of the Great Lakes and lead to fairly
persistent LES for most of the period. The LES may not be overly heavy in
any one particular 24 hour period, but will fall pretty persistently in the
belts favored by west and NW winds (Porkies to Copper Harbor and Munising to
Paradise in the UP as well as NWL MI). This could lead to quite a few
locales picking up double digit totals from later Friday into early next
week, perhaps even as much as 2 feet in some favored locales.
