WINTER WEATHER ALERTS

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: in effect until 9:00 PM Tuesday for the counties of HURON, LAPEER, SANILAC, and TUSCOLA.

To keep tabs on any additional warnings or advisories, head to our Weather Alerts page.

SYSTEM SUMMARY

An area of low pressure that has been moving over the Midwest the last few days, will continue to move through our region today. It's expected to settle over the Lake Huron and Lake Erie region, and will remain there through Tuesday before eventually lifting out of the area on Wednesday.

With plenty of moisture available from Lake Huron, we will see accumulations from this event, with the heaviest snow falling in the eastern areas of the Thumb.

Snow will start late this evening, and it's expected to reach it's peak intensity between about late morning through the evening hours on Tuesday. Snow will continue at times through Tuesday night, before tapering off toward Wednesday.

SNOW ACCUMULATIONS

Attached in the article you will find an estimated snowfall map. It is important to note that even a slight westerly jog with this system could increase snowfall totals across the board. Stay tuned to the First Warn 5 Weather Center and our newscasts for updates. 

In general, in the advisory area (listed above), expect between about 3-6 inches of snow through Tuesday. With additional snowfall on Wednesday, amounts will be between about 4-7 inches for the entire event.

West of the advisory area, expect snowfall totals around 2-4 inches by Wednesday night, with areas west of the Tri-Cities seeing about 1-3 inches through Wednesday night.
