Another Round of Lake Effect Ahead

It was just the other day that parts of the South Shore saw over a foot of heavy and wet snow. Now, another surge of cold air over Lake Superior will restart the lake effect snow machine.

The clipper system that is affecting us right now bringing rain and snow showers this afternoon will be fusing together with a much larger and powerful storm that is moving up the Northeast Coast tomorrow. This combined force will enlarge the storm and increase the strength of the wind from out of the north and northwest.

With cold air rushing in from Canada over the warm lake, lake effect snow showers will set up along the South Shore.

We could see 1-3 inches along the higher elevations in Douglas and Bayfield County. Another heavier batch of snow will occur from Eastern Ashland through Iron and Gogebic County.

Snowfall totals near Ironwood could exceed 6 inches by Tuesday morning, which is Halloween.
