Winter storm warning issued for Tuesday

The lake-effect machine is not over yet

Tuesday morning. Light snow will fade away this morning as the clipper system moves through.

Meteorologist Cindi Clawson: 1:45 PM Update - The eastern two lake-effect bands appear to be breaking up some, but the western band is still bringing heavy snow to areas around and west of United States 31. Blowing and drifting snow is possible.

MAP: By Tuesday morning, several dominant bands of lake-effect snow will be set up.

We do get a break in our weather for Thursday, with breaks of sunshine.

Two to four inches of snow is expected to accumulate along the eastern shoreline, but there is the potential of localized amounts of six inches or more.

East of Lake Ontario, with its broader fetch and more favorable wind direction, higher accumulations are in the cards. In the evening temperatures will start to drop sharply with a low of 26 and wind that could make it feel more like single digits.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for snow showers.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warnings for Allegan, Ottawa, Muskegon, Van Buren, Oceana, Mason, Berrien, St. Joseph and Cass counties. Similar warnings are in place along the Lake Ontario shoreline and in Western New York.

Tuesday night much colder air comes in to start the lake effect machine up again. Temperatures will steadily increase, and should be above average by the end of the weekend.
