More lake effect tonight; some for Monday
Happy New Year’s Eve! A heavy lake effect band, currently over Lake Michigan, will slowly migrate east over the next several hours, making driving hazardous, reducing visibility and increasing snowfall rates up to 1-2” per hour. It should dissipate after midnight but lake effect snow showers are still possible through the night and into Monday afternoon. 6+” could still fall in parts of Berrien and LaPorte counties, which is why both are now under the Winter Storm Warning until 11 PM CST/midnight EST.
After the snow moves out, the bitter cold will set in. Highs only in the single digits for the first two days of 2018. Another midweek system bumps highs up into the teens but brings system snow Wednesday and lake effect again Thursday and Friday. Highs climb more into 20s by the weekend with another low looming.
Tonight: Mostly/partly cloudy with lake effect snow showers. Low of 0.
New Year’s Day: Mostly/partly cloudy with L.E. snow showers, mainly along and north of the Toll Road. High of 8.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Highs near 7.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with system snow in the afternoon. Highs in the mid teens.
